We are very proud to announce that SWITCHtoHEALTHY has been mentioned in the latest Report by SFS Med Platform titled “Sustainable agrifood systems in the Mediterranean: levers for transformation” that was released on the 28th of November 2023.
In particular, SWITCHtoHEALTHY project is included in one of the levers of transformation explored in the SFS MED Report called “The Mediterranean diet for more sustainable consumption” with a link to the project presentation on the FAO official website. With reference to SWITCHtoHEALTHY, the SFS Med Report writes: “Consumer-driven data collected through surveys, digital tools (e.g. mobile apps), and comparative analyses enable researchers to develop recommendations and guidelines to drive more sustainable consumption patterns”.
“In SWITCHtoHEALTHY – the project coordinator Simona Mincione (ENCO) has commented – the fusion of digital tools promoting behavioural changes in food habits, combined with empowerment through gaming and hands-on tools, emerges as a powerful strategy. Illuminating the path for schoolchildren, SWITCHtoHEALTHY nurtures responsible decision-making. By sowing the seeds of consciousness, education becomes the driving force behind a shift towards long-term adherence to the Mediterranean diet.”
