Interdisciplinarity Guide Launch
One in five children in Amsterdam is overweight, which has proven a difficult problem to solve. Obesity is multifaceted, originating from and persisting due to a combination of medical, social and political factors. This is why an interdisciplinary view is key towards lowering this percentage of overweight kids. Together with Amsterdam’s chief scientific officer Caroline Nevejan, Amsterdam Young Academy will present such a multifaceted view of childhood obesity, marking the launch of Interdisciplinarity beyond the buzzword: a guide to academic work across disciplines.
