Today, on 10 December a policy toolkit will be presented at the final conference of the European four-year research project INHERIT. Our current consumption and production patterns, behaviour and lifestyle, are often unhealthy and unsustainable, and there are persistent health inequalities. The INHERIT project has looked for promising policy and practical initiatives that contribute to a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle, while at the same time helping to reduce health inequalities ('triple win') – areas embedded in RIVMNational Institute for Public Health and the Environment ’s DNA. Some of these initiatives have also been evaluated.
At the conference ‘A Future for all to INHERIT: Taking Action Now’ there will be debates amongst EU Health State Secretaries, including from the Finnish Presidency of the EU, high-level representatives from the European Commission and European Parliament, local policymakers, and leading researchers and economists. The recommendations of the INHERIT Toolkit will serve to frame the debates.
