INHERIT (INter-sectoral Health and Environment Research for InnovaTion) is a transnational 4-years research project funded under the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme involving 18 partners from 12 countries. It investigates policies, practices and innovations that can influence our behaviours in ways that promote better health across social gradients, by looking at key environmental stressors and related inequalities. The project covers the areas of living (green space & energy-efficient housing), (active) moving and (food) consuming.
2) Project description
Main activities, outcomes and lessons learned from the INHERIT project finalised in 2019 are presented and discussed and an insight into the results of the INHERIT five-country survey focusing on physical activity is provided.
Based on a conceptual Common Analytical Framework integrating the “Behavioural Change Wheel”, promising practices were identified across Europe, transferred and implemented to other contexts and evaluated, using a mixed-methods approach. Fifteen case studies were included into the analysis. Lessons learnt from these case studies as well as from cross-country surveys and citizens’ focus group discussions of four positive scenarios of future European societies shaped the elaboration of a tool kit with policy recommendations in support to INHERIT’s ‘triple-win’.
4) Lessons learned
The session contributes to a better understanding of the nature and extent of the impact and benefits of inter-sectoral interventions that address health, equity and environmental issues and of the role of behaviour (change) for both climate and health protection.
Adapting how we live, move and consume: European practices for sustainable lifestyles and health equity – Results of the INHERIT project
Ingrid Stegeman | EuroHealthNet (EHN) | Germany
Starting with the development of a common analytical framework and a baseline review on main environmental stressors and their impact on health across the social gradient, INHERIT has identified, investigated and promoted effective intersectoral policies and practices that enable and encourage healthier, more sustainable and equitable behaviours and lifestyles. The outcomes of INHERIT’s various activities feed into a policy toolkit with recommendations to policymakers at various levels.
Physical activity, eating patterns and willingness for healthier and sustainable diets across people and countries – A five-country survey on citizens’ attitudes, preferences and behaviours
Iva Zvěřinová | Charles University Prague | Czech Republic
A survey conducted in the Czech Republic, Latvia, Portugal, Spain and the UK explores how physical activity and eating patterns vary across EU countries and household segments and which are their main determinants, incl. attitudinal factors. It analyses the willingness to pay for changing diet to be more healthy and sustainable. Physical activity is used, together with diet, health risk, environmental impacts and the cost of alternative lifestyle, as an attribute in discrete choice experiments.
