INHERIT contributes to European public health

As a special feature of the 10th European Public Health Conference that took place in Stockholm, Sweden, between 1-4 November 2017, the INHERIT pre-conference “Changing lifestyles and behaviours for healthier and more sustainable societies”  contributed to the debate and helped advance sustainable practices in the increasingly inter-related fields of health, environment and societal well-being.

The EPH Conference aims to improve public health in Europe by offering a means for exchanging information and a platform for debate to researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners in the field of public health and health services research as well as public health training and education in Europe.

The role that individual behaviours can play in moving towards more sustainable societies has generally been under-emphasised and can be a powerful entry point for change. Many measures to protect the environment also improve our health and reduce societal inequalities, but work is needed to fully harness and develop the combined benefits.

Over its 4-year mandate (2016-2019) as an EU-funded HORIZON 2020 project, INHERIT will continue to endeavor to identity promising practices from around Europe and to continue fine-tuning its research and analysis of the interconnection between health, environment and society to propose 4 scenarios that could positive influence individual to be more sustainable in their daily lives.
