Implementing Triple-Win Case Studies for Living, Moving and Consuming that Encourage Behavioural Change, Protect the Environment, and Promote Health and Health Equity
This report provides systematic descriptions of the implementation of the selected 15 INHERIT case studies, which are spread across Europe, aiming to encourage healthy behaviour and/or address key environmental stressors for health by encouraging people to change their lifestyles and behaviours and by supporting the environment and sustainability.
This report offers insight into context-specific issues that are crucial when implementing initiatives. Too often, interventions that work in small-scale pilot studies fail to live up to expectations when rolled out to a larger regional or national context, or when they are transferred from one country to another. A wide array of contextual factors will influence implementation and produce foreseen as well as unforeseen effects.
An implementation report such as this plays an important role in elucidating how and why contextual factors influence the outcomes of interventions. Furthermore, rich descriptions of the implementation process are valuable to improve understanding of summative outcomes. This comprehensive overview of the 15 INHERIT case studies can inform efforts to implement more of such initiatives, leading to more opportunities to encourage and enable people to live and behave in ways that sustain health, the environment and that promote health equity.
