Cooperation Workshop With German and Lithuanian Partner Organisations on the Use of “Nudging" in Promoting Healthy Eating Habits in Society

Project Details


The Latvian society has poor dietary habits and obesity is increasing every year (Centre for Disease Prevention and Control of Latvia data: 45.1% in 2010, 58.7% in 2018). This contributes to the development of non-communicable diseases, reduced quality of life, and reduced life expectancy. Like us, scientists in Germany have difficulty implementing research results into practice. Our German peers have experience in conducting research into nudging at catering establishments to improve healthier eating habits in society, both in their own environment and in other cultures. They are interested to extend their research to other cultures, this time to the Baltic States.

Addressing and selecting those interested in using nudging to promote healthier eating habits in society;
Planning the guest lecturer visits from German partner organisation;
Planning and organising project partners’ workshops for experience exchange on measures to promote healthier eating habits in Latvia, Lithuania, and Germany, as well as an exchange of experience on the use of nudging;
Visits by guest lecturers from a German partner organisation and a guest lecture on nudging;
Planning and conducting a seminar on the use of nudging in promoting healthier eating habits in society;
Summary of the results by the guest lecturer visits, the workshop and the seminar;
