This workshop introduced concepts and tools of systems thinking. Through interactive group activities, participants learnt to apply systems thinking to the planning, implementation, and resourcing of healthy food retail interventions and policies. Participants also had the opportunity to provide input into the development of a practical, systems-based tool aimed at supporting health promotion practitioners in creating healthy food retail environments in health services, sports and recreation settings, and local government settings.

Workshop 2, on 4 May 2022, will build upon skills developed in the first workshop and participation in both is highly recommended to get the most out of this learning experience.

These workshops are designed for:

  • Health promotion practitioners, project officers, and health promotion managers interested in, or with experience of, implementing healthy food retail policies
  • Staff located at hospitals, health services, sports and recreation organisations, and local government who are involved, or will be involved in, the design, implementation or evaluation of healthy food or drink retail initiatives
  • Participants from all states and territories are welcome.


This project is funded in part by The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre and Deakin University Institute of Health Transformation.
