Healthy and sustainable lifestyles for all - what works? Invitation to #InheritYourFuture Forum on 21 November - Vienna, Austria

21 November 2018

Adapting how we live, move and consume to protect the environment and promote health: a European exchange on promising practices

21 November 2018, 9:00–17:15, with a joint-reception at 19:00 with Austrian EU Presidency Conference
Venue: MuseumsQuartier (MQ), Museumsplatz 1, Vienna, Austria

After 3 years investigating societal trends and intersectoral European practices, the #InheritYourFuture Forum will promote successful practices for sustainable lifestyles and health equity across Europe and introduce four achievable future scenarios for Europe in 2040.

These will be focused on sustainable diets, active transport, green spaces in cities and energy efficient housing. Leaders of health promotion and environmentally sustainable practices will showcase inspiring examples that successfully benefit health, the environment and health equality - achieving the INHERIT triple-win.

We invite citizens and stakeholders involved in policy, research, media and business to discuss how to further strengthen and mainstream good practice, towards healthy and sustainable lifestyles for all.

#InheritYourFuture Forum is a pre-conference to the Austrian EU Council presidency event "People’s food - people’s health: Towards healthy and sustainable European Food Systems" (November 22-23). 

 

About INHERIT

Check out the INHERIT introductory video here for an overview of the four future achievable scenarios on sustainable ways of living, moving and consuming. The INHERIT project identifies, evaluates and promotes inter-sectoral policies enabling and fostering sustainable lifestyles across the social gradient. INHERIT’s ambition is to advance current policy agendas and solutions.

We aim at addressing the ‘take, make, consume, dispose’ model of growth by looking at key environmental factors and related inequities. Our research formulates evidence-based models of good practices and policy scenarios in three focus areas: living (green spaces in cities and energy efficient housing), moving (active transport) and consuming (sustainable diets).

The INHERIT project is an European Horizon 2020 funded four-year project (2016-2019) coordinated by EuroHealthNet - the leading Partnership for Health, Equity and Wellbeing in Europe and supported by 18 partners in 12 countries. More on our website: www.inherit.eu
