Grants and in-kind support to USA and Canada individuals and IHE faculty for projects that address sustainable food and nutritional health needs. Grants provide financial support and professional assistance to plan and create projects for improved public health. This initiative will provide seed funding for team projects such as pilot studies, feasibility testing, needs assessments, and planning grants. Teams may use this grant mechanism to supplement current funding from other sources, but new project aims must be developed for the “One Planet. One Health” Initiative funding.

As part of the initiative, selected teams will participate in a multi-day virtual program in October 2021 and four-day in-person program in spring 2022. The objectives of these programs are to provide expertise and support for enhancing projects through project-specific communication and evaluation assistance, and to facilitate the development of a community among award recipients to share ideas, offer support, and create a grassroots movement toward sustainable food systems that improve human health. Programming will include content on the relationship between sustainable food systems and human health from experts in sustainability, communication, nutrition, and economics; presentations and panels of community stakeholders involved in the sustainability food ecosystem; and panels and group discussions about working in transdisciplinary teams toward a common cause.

The in-person program will conclude with teams presenting a communications plan to support their project to a panel of experts. The team that presents the strongest communication plan as determined by the panel will be awarded an additional $10,000 prize. Throughout the 24-month award period, the teams will receive assistance by Danone Institute North America Board members to facilitate implementation, evaluation, and communication of their projects. Opportunities to stay connected with other award recipients will also be provided.

Specific Objectives of the "One Planet. One Health" Initiative:

  • Advance Danone’s "One Planet. One Health" frame of action through innovative, actionable North America-focused initiatives to promote sustainable food systems that reflect that the health of people and the health of the planet are interconnected. Examples of focus areas include: regenerative agriculture, measurement and mitigation of carbon footprint, reducing food waste, closing food systems gaps that prevent equitable and sustainable access to healthy food, promotion of balanced dietary patterns that help fight obesity, address the nutritional and specific health needs of children, and support healthy aging throughout adulthood.
  • Foster a new generation of transdisciplinary thought leaders working together and advocating for food systems solutions that can benefit the health of the public.
  • Amplify the understanding of the relationship between sustainable food systems and human health among key decision-makers and the public.
  • Forge new networks and collaborative relationships among Danone North America, Danone Institute North America, academic institutions in North America, community groups involved with food sustainability issues, health of the population, and broader food systems disciplines.
