Working across disciplines and borders to develop innovative dementia solutions
The World Young Leaders in Dementia (WYLD) is a network of passionate, young professionals working across disciplines and borders to develop innovative dementia solutions.
Our membership represents over 29 countries across six continents.
HOW WE FORMED
WYLD emerged from a series of legacy meetings following the 2013 G8 Dementia summit.
The UK Science & Innovation Network invited emerging leaders working in diverse fields of dementia to meet at events held in Ottawa, Tokyo, Washington DC and London.
Together, we developed a draft a set of proposals to present at WHO’s First Ministerial Conference on Global Action Against Dementia in March 2015. This process sparked a number of new research collaborations and creation of the WYLD network.
Tackling the challenges of dementia together in the 21st century.
Together, we will create a better world for those living with dementia, their families and their communities.
- Bringing creative brainstorming, fresh perspectives, and novel solutions to the dementia field.
- Contributing to new dementia strategies incorporating the latest technological and research innovations to meet the needs of a rapidly changing world.
- Providing a platform for idea exchange and shared projects to enable a culture of collaboration among the next generation of leaders in dementia.
WYLD aims to advance the development of global solutions.
All WYLD members support the network by volunteering their time and expertise.
