How do we create an urban environment that challenges us to lead a healthy life with a healthy diet? The research programme at Aeres University of Applied Sciences Almere focuses on factors that influence our lifestyle and our nutrition, and the question of how these factors can contribute to this in a sustainable manner. Factors such as green physical factors (urban green space), social factors (points of sale of food) or economic factors.
The research programme ‘Gezond leven in de groene stad’, or Healthy living in a green city, enables us to develop new knowledge and business concepts. We carry out this research for and together with various parties in the region, such as local governments, businesses and institutes and NGOs. Students from the faculty and from other faculties and other universities of applied sciences participate in this research in modules, practical research, thesis research and internships.
