INHERIT is a four-year (2016-2019) Horizon 2020 research initiative funded by the European Commission, bringing together 18 partners from across Europe. It aims to stimulate effective policies, practices and innovations that simultaneously restore the environment, whilst promoting health and health equity – in other words, that enable a ‘triple-win’.
INHERIT focuses on the areas of living (green space and energy efficient housing), moving (active transport) and consuming (food consumption and production), encouraging us to modify our current lifestyles, char- acterised by a ‘take, make, consume, dispose’ model of growth. INHERIT has formulated scenarios for a more sustainable future and has designed, implemented and tested intersectoral initiatives to achieve the triple-win.
This booklet brings together the results of the four-year initiative, which are relevant to professionals across different sectors (health, environment, food, education, energy, transport, etc.), to policymakers at EU, national, regional and local level, and to individuals across generations who can be inspired to take action.
