Human activities, population growth and consumer behavior have a tremendous impact on the ecosystem ofour planet. Societal challenges are interacting with climate change, our health, food production and consumption patterns. As a society we are seeking ways to increase crop yields to feed “the next billion”, while striving for future proof food systems, more animal welfare, more locally and efficiently produced crops with lower impacts on our land-use, biodiversity, and soils. These multifaceted interests are opposed by increasing weather extremes, soil degradation and decreasing intensification in the agricultural sector. Knowing how food systems are deeply interconnected with biological, economic and societal systems, the challenge at hand is not a small endeavor, but together and idea by idea, we strongly believe that we can make a difference.
To address the challenge and spur innovative solutions we called to action H-HEALTH as a Hub for Human Environmental Agri-food Leap to Transform Health. With a humanistic approach, we put the connections and interactions between healthy soils, healthy plants, healthy people, and a healthy environment at the center. Within this trajectory, H-HEALTH acts as an enabling platform, brings together the capabilities of academia, organizations, and industry to create ideal conditions for innovation and groundbreaking ideas to spring into action.
With H-HEALTH, we foster as a transdisciplinary community to explore how the well-being of our human
society ultimately co-depends on functioning systems. Within the project, we are organizing workshops and provide open discussion platforms to find solutions and ideas together as a community. We aim to enable innovative ideas created to take shape and accelerate.
