The SU-EATABLE project is a EU-LIFE funded collaborative project in Italy, the UK and the Netherlands that aims to find new strategies to inspire people to eat more sustainably and healthy. Project activities are co-designed with cafeteria’s in 3 universities and 5 businesses and include re-arrangement of the food offering, on-site communication and a social engagement app. The long-term objective is to contribute to a substantial reduction in CO2 eq. emissions and water saving in EU via active engagement of all actors in food offering and -consumption.
At HSO, we are responsible for the scientific framework including all monitoring and evaluation. Topics to study depend on the running project activities. Thesis that are currently done, aim to answer the questions:
- How do people learn to eat healthfully and sustainably?
- Do changes towards sustainable eating practices influence other sustainable practices such as choosing transport and recycling?
- How to enable food literate sustainable communities?
Do you want to get a better understanding of sustainable food choice, how to align sustainable with healthy eating guidelines or finding new ways to inspire people to eat like this, please contact Laura Bouwman (email@example.com) for more information.
