More information

Human behaviour has a clear impact on the environment and, consequently, in the short and long term, on the global sustainability of the planet. The Master in Design for One Health focuses on the close relationship of reciprocity, mutual influence and impact between human beings and the environment. Under the term 'One Health', this programme offers a global, integral and multidisciplinary vision of health. 

Health and physical and mental well-being are linked to the ecosystems where all living beings coexist. Thus, we propose an innovative look at design in relation to health from a systemic and holistic approach, working on the observation of the environment, behaviours, technology, communication, ethics, socio-economics, and other areas.  

Design has a key role in creating new visions, options and solutions. We will take into consideration current scientific knowledge related to energy efficiency and climate change, and engage with biological efficiency, in order to care for life in all its forms and bring health and well-being.   

This course is open to all who want to participate in the design of products, processes and infrastructures of the future.  

In this course we will analyse and question what is already established, speculate on possible courses of action and make creative proposals with real potential for future application. We will work in close contact with social agents, companies and institutions, as collaborators and also as final recipients of the work developed. And we will do this through 

  • Holistic vision. Exercising an integral and complete vision on the analysis of reality.  
  • Innovation. Finding the differential factor that provides value content to a design proposal, based on a critical vision of the reality that surrounds us.   
  • Transdisciplinarity. Developing proposals through all branches of design at all scales, from the object to the territory.  
  • Exploration. Being proactive (even more than resilient) by focusing on the potential of a degree '0' society.  
  • Research. Travelling the road without a defined objective, searching for the unknown.   
  • Speculation and creativity.  
  • One Health. Having a global, integral, multidisciplinary vision of health, linked to the ecosystems in which all living beings coexist.   
  • Well-being. Designing for physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
