Project Summary

The challenges we are facing to date are how to create a healthy environment for everyone, and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle for all under the premise of economic benefits and the limits of having only one Earth. It is evident that both healthy diet and physical activity have profound influences on health and quality of life. Nowadays, under the framework of a sustainable environment, promotion of healthy diet and physical activity should go beyond the conventional focus of individual behavior or social determinants, and toward a wider range of ecological and economic aspects. Chinese Taipei proposes the project “Achieve One Planet from 4E: Eat, Exercise, Ecology, Economics” to effectively promote green eating and livable exercise, so as to generate great co-benefits in Non-communicable Diseases prevention, sustainable environment protection, and economic benefits. Moreover, it may shed light on how to overcome or co-exist with the pandemic (COVID-19) in the near future. Through the hosting of a 1-day Hybrid Conference (events with a mix of both physical and remote access participation), Chinese Taipei will provide a communication channel for the APEC economies to share public policies and strategic actions. The conference will provide an opportunity for APEC economies to deliberate on the issues of healthy diet promotion, sustainable food system, physical activity enhancement, and the economy of scales resulting from green supply chains. It is expected that the conference would lead to a general agreement on how to apply innovative and cost-effective approaches to address the targets of 4E.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: A healthy population not only promotes economic benefits, but also reduces medical costs and boosts work force efficiency. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is key to the prevention and control of Non-communicable Diseases. In alignment with WHO’s Global Action Plan on Non-communicable Diseases, the key issues are creating healthy environment and healthy lifestyles for all, under the premise of Non-communicable Diseases prevention, economic benefits, and the limits of having only one Earth. Although the overall global food production (total calories) keeps up with population growth, more than 820 million people still do not get enough food, which leads to consumption of low-quality food, whilst unhealthy diet is one of the main risks of Non-communicable Diseases. The consumption of in-season and locally grown agricultural produce and limiting the intake of over-packaged or processed food is considered to be both healthy and environmentally friendly.

Incorporating physical activity into daily life provides an opportunity to increase and meet the recommended physical activity levels. However, upgrading both healthy diet and physical activity into green eating and livable exercise requires multidisciplinary approaches. It moves beyond the conventional focus of mere individual behaviour and builds upon the more systemic focus on social determinants of health, in order to take into account a wider range of ecological and economic aspects. Multi-sectoral action is crucial for health and well-being.

Chinese Taipei hereby proposes a new healthy lifestyle movement that combines eco-friendly (carbon footprint reduction) and economic harmonization, focusing on 4E (Eat, Exercise, Ecology, Economics), to effectively promote green eating and livable exercise (e.g. walking and bicycling instead of taking vehicles, taking the stairs instead of elevators), so as to generate greater co-benefits in Non-communicable Diseases prevention, sustainable environment protection and economic benefits. To be more specific, consuming local and seasonal fruit and vegetable will reduce both carbon footprint and storage cost while generating a positive feedback loop on green supply chains, which yields significant economy of scales. The economic benefits could also be obtained from livable exercise. We have been advocating biking in recent years to encourage people going outdoors. In accordance with Chinese Taipei Tourism Bureau, the cycling route at one of our tourist spots enables 22 bike rental stores and 12 overnight accommodations to serve a total of 3.43 person-times visits, generating approximately a revenue of 223.45 million US Dollars. It could be inferred that the social atmosphere of healthy lifestyle enables industries to yield significant economy of scales by making the most of characteristic foods and sports in each administrative district, which is worthwhile for other APEC economies to take into account. The multi-sectoral approach of environmental protection would not only result in economic benefits, but also resonate the core value of conserving our planet. Protecting the Earth is to protect human health, hence the project may shed light on how to fight against or co-exist with the pandemic in the near future.

The project aims to deepen the discussion on innovations and multi-sectoral synergy for green eating and livable exercise, the roles of non-health sectors in promoting health, the significance of health sector in promoting environmental health, and how to utilize whole system approaches to work collaboratively across all relevant sectors to achieve the common goal in a broad context of economic benefits and ecological sustainability. This will provide a communication channel for the APEC economies and international experts to share public policies, educational resources, professional skills and competencies, data analytical technique, and strategic actions that could address the issues of Non-communicable Diseases prevention via a number of methods such as healthy diet promotion strategies, food system indicators for sustainable development, innovative and economically effective plans to promote physical activity, and taking the next steps toward sustainable development goals. 

Relevance – Eligibility and Fund Priorities: This project is in line with the priority area of APEC Support Fund – Sub-Fund on Human Security: Emergency Preparedness, and meets the main areas of priority for the theme of APEC 2020 – “Optimizing Human Potential toward a Future of Shared Prosperity” and “Driving Innovative Sustainability” that aim to strengthen the topic of food safety and the goals for a sustainable environment. This project can provide a communication channel of new healthy lifestyle concepts by exercising and healthy diet, combining environmental protection and economic benefits to maintain the sustainability of the Earth, and allowing people to adopt a new healthy lifestyle movement to conquer or co-exist with the pandemic in the near future. 

Relevance – Capacity Building: This project meets the goals of capacity building—attaining sustainable growth and equitable development in the Asia-Pacific region and improving the economic and social well-being of the people—through the establishment of a new healthy lifestyle that combines eco-friendly (carbon footprint reduction) and economic harmonization focusing on 4E, which simultaneously generate greater co-benefits for Non-communicable Diseases prevention. In order to improve health and social well-being, the project aims to develop an effective approach to exchange experiences and build long-term collaborating relationship among APEC economies. 

Throughout the project, we will conduct ongoing consultation with HWG members and target APEC members’ needs to design agenda and related information of the conference. Additionally, we will provide APEC economies with the essential components and key strategies to produce better health outcomes. It is anticipated that a  general agreement for new healthy lifestyle movement with all APEC member economies could be reached. Furthermore, dissemination of acquired skills and long-term collaboration relationship among APEC member economies may foster healthier lifestyle and environment altogether in the APEC region.

Objectives

Green eating and livable exercise adapted by the general public, leading to environmental sustainability and economic prosperity.


Alignment

Alignment - APEC:

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs: This project will be carried out in the form of an international conference exploring better strategies for healthy lifestyle, which combines green eating, physical activities, eco-friendly (carbon footprint reduction) and economic harmonization focusing on 4E (Eat, Exercise, Ecology, Economics), integrated care for chronic disease, sustainable environmental protection, and economic stimulation in the APEC region. It would consist of a 1-day Hybrid Conference (events with a mix of both physical and remote access participation) that will be held in 2022 to provide a communication channel of information exchange, discussion and consultation for all APEC member economies.

1) 1-day Hybrid Conference

The conference theme is new healthy lifestyle movement and Non-communicable Diseases prevention by 4E; in the conference, two lectures are scheduled each in the morning (before lunch break) and afternoon (after lunch break) sessions. At the end of the lectures, there will be a discussion. The conference contains three aspects: (1) Non-communicable Diseases risk factors prevention and control program, including innovative health communication strategies such as physical activity and healthy diet; (2) How green eating and livable exercise are related to the missions of different sectors (such as Health, Agriculture, Sports, Education, and Environment departments; e.g. Through customer literacy enhancement, the carbon footprint and environmental burden of food packaging will both be reduced while making local and eco-friendly firms profitable), how they engage partners from other sectors in planning and implementation, and how innovative technology may accelerate the progress; (3) Sharing experiences on promotion of diet, vegetarian diet (plant-based diet and other low-carbon diet industry chains), and green transportation policies (i.e. sharing economy in various APEC economies).

In the discussion, experts who are responsible for green eating, physical activities and sustainable environments from the private and public sectors in APEC economies and non-APEC stakeholders will be invited as a moderator or speaker to share the latest development strategies and experiences in improving healthy diets and physical activities (Non-communicable Diseases prevention and control). We will conduct the conference evaluation by a questionnaire survey to assess participants and experts’ satisfaction comments and suggestions.

2) Project Report

The working group in Health Promotion Administration (HPA), Ministry of Health and Welfare, Chinese Taipei will produce a  Project Report which will not be published by APEC. The report will abide by the APEC rules and be well-structured in terms of the cover page, introduction, table of contents, topic-based summaries of presentations, content of the manual, result of the surveys, conclusions, and key findings and recommendations. The  Project Report will be no more than 10 pages.

Outcomes: 

1) Awareness raised and capacity built for all participants. Green eating and livable exercise habits promoted, hence chronic diseases prevented, environmental sustainability enhanced, and economy boosted. Participants’ literacy improved in further applications of the knowledge and information acquired during the conference, hence the major challenges and constraints identified in their economies and their capacity of innovation and multidisciplinary policy-making enhanced, ultimately the domestic “green plans” revised to lead global trends

2) Green living sphere formed. Digital maps of health launched in each APEC economy. Bike trails, hiking trails, and fitness facilities at the park searched by community members. Discount offered for customers who collect certain walking mileage. Incentives for public engagement provided and revenue of local firms increased.

3) Channel of information exchange constructed. The Asia-Pacific Academic Consortium for Public Health (APACPH) aims to enhance the well-being of all residents in the Asia Pacific Region. As a member in the consortium, HPA could maintain close interaction with relevant institutions and exchange important information on the facilitation of practical and effective policy-making.

4) Through the speakers’ presentation and discussion during the conference, the general agreement on the importance of green eating and livable exercise for preventing chronic diseases and securing environmental sustainability in the APEC region can be reached and strengthened. Furthermore, by utilizing the expert network, sustained sharing of expertise to develop adaptable and innovative strategies can be achieved. When some of the economies encounter obstacle in green eating or livable exercise, we can identify the issues timely and consult with the expert directly through the network, whom we will invite to future relevant conferences or activities. The information provided by the expert will also be uploaded to the APEC website. Through the expert network, participants can keep in touch with one another to strengthen the regional capacity of promoting green eating and livable exercise, such as promotion strategies for healthy diets and innovative plans to promote physical activity in economical ways. It is anticipated that long-term cooperation relationship among APEC member economies can be established to tackle environmental sustainability and Non-communicable Diseases prevention issues together.

Beneficiaries: The target beneficiaries of this project are stakeholders directly or indirectly involved in the promotion of green eating, livable exercise, chronic disease prevention, green procurement, environmental sustainability, animal protection and innovation. The participants will include public health workers, healthcare workers, HWG members, as well as academic organizations and stakeholders related to healthcare. This conference is designed to be straightforward, which explains complex issues in simple terms, letting participants enhance their general scientific knowledge, hence we intend to invite speakers from different fields so as to share practical experiences and provide enlightening ideas to elevate the quality and efficacy of the discussion. Meanwhile, participants from each background could all learn the valuable knowledge and skills from those with different professions. Overall, through multidisciplinary engagement, the participatory economies would learn about how to incorporate health promotion into various industries and recognize the unique selling points, thus taking environmental sustainability and health into account as a way to stimulate economic prosperity.

During the conference, healthy lifestyle programs, strategies and speeches will be shared and discussed. We expect that through the sharing of professional information and practical experience, participants can understand effective strategic actions that APEC member economies have taken, learn from other economies’ experience to improve their capacity action plans, and adopt the best practices to develop healthy lifestyle environment via innovations and multi-sectoral synergy in their economies.

Participants are encouraged to utilize the knowledge and information gained in the conference to influence decision makers or other healthcare workers in their respective economies. We hope this methodology can be applied via a hub and spoke model to augment the benefits of this proposal beyond the participants.

Dissemination

The conference manual will be disseminated to participants and made available for access by the general public via the conference website. To ensure a productive conference, the presentation slides and relevant materials will be collected ahead of the conference, and the digital copies will be distributed to the participants. Documents and materials in the conference, such as conference agenda, feedback evaluation and other materials will be prepared in soft copies and made available to all participants. 

We will encourage all participants to actively participate in conference activities. Before the conference, participants will be asked during the registration process to provide brief information about their experience of healthy lifestyle designs sharing, plans and strategies. 

Project Report will be uploaded to the homepage of the HPA website for general public access. In addition, a QR code will be developed and included in the conference manual. All information can be accessed online through scanning the QR code linking to the HPA website. Free online information will be available for public health workers and healthcare professionals to obtain, even if they are not able to attend the conference.

Gender

All genders are encouraged to attend this conference with anticipation of fair representation from respective gender.

Project organizers will try to involve at least 30 percent of female speakers, and it is expected that approximately 50% of conference participants will be women.

We encourage participants to contribute their issues with Gender friendly considerations such as related regulation and policy, design and innovation. Women’s contribution toward aging population as primary care takers is hereby dully noted. Gender friendly issues can be discussed as a specific session if adequate interest has been generated from member economies.

This project promotes “skills, capacity building, and health” and “innovation and technology” by strengthening women’s knowledges, skills and capacity of technology innovation utilization in healthy aging during the conference. In compliance to the statement of “Healthy Women, Healthy Economies” declared by APEC, we will also encourage invited speakers to emphasize the linkage between women’s health and healthy lifestyle and sustainable urban environments, to raise the importance of women’s health of all participants, and eventually include the five pillars of the Gender Criteria (Access to Capital/Assets; Access to Markets; Skills, Capacity Building, Health; Leadership, Agency, Voice; Innovation and Technology). After the conference, all participants will bring back the knowledge they received to their home economy, and assist the women population in their economies to learn new care skills and innovation technology.

To provide women with more opportunities, we will consult related experts and invite as many women as possible to attend the conference as either speakers or delegates.

PO is committed to collect sex disaggregated data for all speakers and participants at the project event, which will be included within Completion Report to the Secretariat at the completion of the project as well as giving future POs guidance on their own gender parity targets.

Risks

Risk 1: Unexpected disaster happens before or during the conference period

Solution: If an unexpected disaster, such as a typhoon, an earthquake or a disease outbreak (e.g. the pandemic) happens before the conference, we will confer with the APEC Secretariat and all APEC economies to decide whether or not the conference should proceed. After considering the risk of the disaster and opinions, the decision on whether the conference should be postponed or held on time will be made. In addition, if most invited moderators, speakers and participants express their concerns for not being able to attend the conference due to an outbreak or a natural disaster, we will replace any physical APEC project events with fully virtual ones. Moreover, a preparedness plan will be formulated during the planning stage of the conference. Local emergency and police departments will be consulted to ensure a safe environment for all participants.

Risk 2: Selected topics might not meet the needs of all HWG members.

Solution: We will confer with HWG members during the preparation stage; in addition, we will provide the latest agenda and related information of the conference to HWG members frequently and anticipate to get feedback from them. Besides, we will work closely with potential speakers to ensure their presentations meet the needs of all HWG members.

Risk 3: If some speaker can’t attend the conference unexpectedly.

Solution: During the planning stage of the conference, we will prepare a backup speaker list to cope with this kind of situation. If there is a cancellation of a speaker, we will contact the backup speaker, and send out the invitation promptly.

Risk 4: There may not be substantial discussions on the four aspects due to time limitation.

Solution: After the conference, the information provided by the experts will be uploaded to the website of HWG, allowing participants to have deep dives into the materials.


Monitoring and Evaluation

The projects will be implemented under the umbrella of APEC. Once the project is approved and the agenda is set, a detailed plan will be generated. We will set a strict timeline of actions for the project, which includes duration, activity, output, deadline, person in charge, etc. Each task will be assigned to a staff, and this person will have to organize and communicate all relevant matters with the team. In addition, PO will organize group meetings every 3~4 weeks to have operators reporting on the progress. Records will be made at each meeting for after-project review. The review meetings can ensure that all the substantive and logistic arrangements for the conference are on track.

We expect that there will be around 100 participants from 10 APEC member economies to take part in the conference. The conference will involve at least 30 percent of female speakers. At least 50% of the invited participants will be female. Furthermore, we expect more than 70% of the participants will be satisfied with the result of the conference. Before and after the conference, a questionnaire survey will be handed out to the participants to assess their satisfaction, opinions, and capacity in healthy lifestyle. The result will be used as indicators to measure this project’s output. The survey indicators include the following:

a)      conference participation rates

b)      government officials participation rates

c)      speakers/moderators/experts engaged

d)      APEC economies attended

e)      survey collected rate

f)       performance assessment of healthy lifestyle

We will finalize a Project Report which will not be published by APEC. The report will comply with the APEC rules and be well structured (e.g. cover page, introduction, table of contents, topic-based summaries of presentations, content of the manual, the results of the surveys, conclusions, key findings and recommendations). The Project Report will be no more than 10 pages and contain at least 3 recommendations.

We will conduct an ex-ante survey via questionnaire, and compare the results with those of the ex-post, to make sure that participants are made aware of the importance and urgency of healthy lifestyle to public health and social-economic development, and to also enhance the participants’ capacity to fight against the burden of Non-communicable Diseases when they return to their home economies.

To measure gender impacts on the project, we will collect sex-disaggregated data in our survey. The feedback and comments from Speakers/Participants regarding the content of the conference will be collected and analyzed.

Furthermore, we expect more than 70% of the participants will be satisfied with the result of the conference, which will be obtained from a questionnaire survey to assess participants’ satisfaction on the topics and speakers, etc. The evaluation result from the questionnaire survey reflecting the lessons learned and experience earned by respective APEC member economies will be formulated, which will help Chinese Taipei design better project contents in the future.

Linkages

We plan to engage all the Ministries/Departments of Health of APEC economies in nominating eligible participants. The project aligns and supports key global frameworks and initiatives, e.g. the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, WHO Global Action Plan on Non-communicable Diseases, WHO Global Action Plan on Physical Activity, etc. We will also invite representatives from the HWG, experts from non-APEC member economies and other international organizations to attend the conference. We will remain in close contact with the APEC Secretariat for advice on non-member participation and ensure that the non-member participation guidelines are closely followed.

This project is also in line with the priority area of APEC Support Fund – Sub-Fund on Human Security: Emergency Preparedness, and meets the main areas of priority for the theme of APEC 2020 – “Optimizing Human Potential towards a Future of Shared Prosperity” is “Driving Innovative Sustainability” – that aims to strengthen the topic of food safety and the goals for a sustainable environment. Echoing on the previous themes, we will also examine how boosting immunity through promotion of healthy lifestyle and eco-friendliness may shed light on how to co-exist or fight against novel infectious diseases like the pandemic.


Sustainability

This conference will assist developing economies to identify major challenges and constraints in their economies and enhance their capacity building to establish healthy lifestyle of green eating and livable exercise. Participants can apply the knowledge and information learned from the conference to develop more suitable strategies for their own economies. Soft copies of the conference outputs will be disseminated to relevant stakeholders and beneficiaries for future reference. Furthermore, a  Project Report will be produced to summarize best practices, key findings and recommendations. 

The conference will facilitate a better understanding of the healthy lifestyle situation in the APEC region among the participants through discussing and sharing the latest information on relevant control efforts. As for future works, Chinese Taipei will revise our green eating and livable exercise strategic plan based on the new idea and information gained from the conference. The result of the conference will be presented at HWG. 

After project completion, we expect participating economies to gain a better insight into new strategies with healthy lifestyle designs. In recent years, new researches and strategies of green eating and livable exercise have become available. We expect the participants would do more researches on those new strategies after they return to their home economies.
