Evidence-based toolkit offers solutions to improve environment, health, and reduce inequalities

Policy Toolkit providing concrete recommendations for policymakers on how to move away from our current ‘take, make, consume, dispose’ models of growth and foster a more ‘INHERIT-able’ future was published today by the European INHERIT research initiative.

The Toolkit provides recommendations for policymakers working at different levels of governance, from the EU to the local level. It aims to help them contribute to restoring the environment, promoting better health, and fostering greater equity – achieving a 'triple-win'. It includes ten recommendations, and three concrete tools for action.

In ten recommendations, the Toolkit focuses on living (green space and energy efficiency), moving (active transport) and consuming (sustainable production and consumption of food), as well as on six on cross-cutting themes:

  • Integrated action
  • Private sector guidance
  • Inclusive community engagement
  • Support for bottom-up action
  • Behaviour change
  • Education and training

The INHERIT Toolkit also includes three concrete tools: a conceptual model for integrated governance, four positive future scenarios of what Europe could look like in 2040, and a database of over 100 promising practices, 15 of which are highlighted in more detail across the relevant recommendations.

The Toolkit will be presented on 10th December at the conference “A Future for all to INHERIT: Taking Action Now. Its recommendations will serve to frame the debates which will take place 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, as they discuss what can be done to ensure a more socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable future.
