Organiser's description (from Wageningen Academy)
Imagine that you find yourself at a bustling market in Bangkok. Will you wait in line for a fresh mango smoothie? Or will you buy the cheap bottle of soda right in front of you? This decision is influenced by interactions with your local food environment. The food environment can help us support healthy, sustainable diets. This is crucial in low- and middle- income settings where all forms of malnutrition remain high. Are you curious about how we can improve food environments? During this self-paced online course, we will explore just that.
After completion of this course, you are able to:
- Explain the concept of the food environment, typologies and ongoing transitions
- Know how the food environment can support healthy sustainable diets
- Explain the challenges and trade-offs to consider in food environments
- Interpret and analyse examples of food environment innovations supporting healthy sustainable diets in low- and middle-income settings
