Course Description

Many health complaints, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes or joint problems seem inescapable diseases of old-age, but originate mostly from our lifestyle. A lifestyle that is largely dictated by our environment. The mismatch between our 'old' genes - our evolutionary heritage - and the 'modern' environment is the reason that we cannot resist the constant stimuli that seduce us to make unhealthy choices. Do's and don'ts cannot help us. 

This health course will take a radically different approach to showing you how to secure a lifestyle, which will keep you healthy throughout the lifespan. We have to let the environment do the work for us. By making small changes at our home, work, school or neighbourhood, healthier choices can become easier and automated.

Practical assignments will give you the skills to re-design your daily environments to promote healthy, longer lives for you and your family, colleagues and neighbo...

Practical assignments will give you the skills to re-design your daily environments to promote healthy, longer lives for you and your family, colleagues and neighbours with whom you share your re-designed environments. You will learn how to create your own healthy living zone!

We will take you on excursions to Copenhagen, Denmark and to Ghent, Belgium to show you hands-on how the environment can help you live longer, healthier and happier lives!

I found this an excellent course and think it particularly valuable for students of all ages. It teaches those not yet old how to improve their chances of reaching a healthy old age. For people, whatever their discipline, whose work impacts on the elderly it teaches how to create environments that maximizes daily activity and health options. For those already elderly, the course provides new information on healthy ageing. This can be applied whatever the older person's current situation and will enable them to spot unhealthy pressures on them as individuals and within their community.

We have done a post survey in our first run and 57% of the participants were super happy. Overall grade for this course was 8,2. Here are a few comments: “the ‘experimental’ approach was refreshing, and I ended up spending time looking for ‘nudges’ and in the end I had fun doing that.” “…opened my eyes to how people, places and things, diet and lifestyle have contributed to my ill health at age 70.” “This course caused me to be more observant and vocal, more provoked and disturbed, not accept the status quo and want to change/improve more than ever my own/our own environment….Finally, at 65, I have been truly educated on healthy ageing.” “This was truly life changing MOOC”
