The NRC has published an interview with researcher Famke Mölenberg about the role of the environment to support health behaviours. The article describes several interventions that Famke evaluated during her PhD, including changes in the food environment and the introduction of physical activity spaces in the city of Rotterdam. A healthy population starts by creating a healthy environment. Therefore, we should shift our priorities from interventions primarily targeting behaviour of individuals, towards interventions targeting the environment to which individuals are exposed.
