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:

The team that presents the strongest communication plan as determined by the panel will be awarded an additional $10,000 prize.
The awards will cover a 24-month period for implementing and evaluating projects.
