We (Well-being Empowerment) Talk – is a novel platform created to share, discuss and connect insights from research on well-being and empowerment in communities.
We Talk starts as a series of stimulating talks to facilitate scientific exchange, community engagement and new interdisciplinary cooperation within King’s College London, TU Dresden and beyond.
Our entire life is built on communities. Families, peer-groups, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces and many more fundamentally affect individual and societal well-being and the resulting socio-economic side-effects. At the same time, mental conditions are very common and the gap between those who could benefit from care and support and those who are actually able to access evidence-based interventions is wide.
Therefore, we believe that the existing body of ideas, knowledge and experience on how to improve health and happiness starting at the community level should be made available as an impactful source of inspiration, empowerment and interdisciplinary collaboration.

We Talk is initiated by On The Move e.V., a non-profit organization that aims to empower local communities to take charge of their mental health and well-being, to strengthen the network of people working in the field of community mental health within the transCampus initiative of King’s College London and TU Dresden. This will further unfold the potential of the unique partnership between two of Europe’s leading academic institutions to improve global well-being. The driving force of the project is a group of motivated students which is highly passionate about community mental health and empowerment.
