Annemieke Wargers from Erasmus MC spoke to us about her involvement in the SEEDS project.
Annemieke was very clear in describing the project in a nutshell: “SEEDS is a very challenging project: the goal to increase healthy lifestyle in teenagers and to increase STEM interest is not easy to achieve. So, it’s very challenging but also very fun and innovative as we use the citizen science approach as a new way of increasing healthy lifestyles.”
Also, she shared with us what learned from her experience in the project SEEDS: “Mainly it’s important to have a big goal, but making a change also begins with making small steps and I think we should also focus on that. Even though it’s a small step or like creating awareness for a healthy lifestyle, that’s also very important to actually begin the change. Of course, the overall goal is to improve a healthy lifestyle and that is very important but we should also focus on what we already did in the project and how we can continue in the coming years.”
