With customers becoming more aware and eco-conscious, along with the international focus on the production, consumption, and disposal of products throughout the globe, there is a need now more than ever for businesses to transition.

For our future generations to inherit a sustainable planet, it is crucial for us to protect the environment in ways that promote health and reduce inequities. The Horizon 2020 research project INHERIT (INter-sectoral Health and Environment Research for InnovaTion) promotes this by identifying ways of living, moving and consuming that protect the environment and promote health and health equity.

The CSCP contributed to the 4-year research project INHERIT by creating four future scenarios, which show European societies where healthy, sustainable and equitable lifestyles have been adopted. The CSCP also led the process by organising workshops with citizens in five European countries to understand their aspirations and wishes for a better future.

The final conference will take place against the backdrop of closing the 4-year EU research project INHERIT, which brings together 18 partners from across Europe, coordinated by EuroHealthNet.

Meet the CSCP on 10 December at the final INHERIT conference. Also, hear speakers from across Europe at international, national, and local levels about practical, implementable, and scalable solutions to bring about this more sustainable future, in line with the global targets set by the Sustainable Development Goals.

This full-day high-level event will also prompt you to consider what you can do as an individual, a consumer, a professional, and a voter, to contribute to more sustainable lifestyles that respect planetary boundaries and promote health and well-being.
