‘Food across the ages’ used case studies to examine changes in attitudes and practice towards food in Vietnam. Inter-generational pairing of community members offered a means of investigating similarities and differences that young and old may have about food.
This project set out to explore differences and similarities towards attitudes on food across multiple generations. Objectives of the project as below:
- To look at inter-generation and changing attitudes and behaviour towards food in Vietnam.
- To involve winder audiences in a public engagement (PE) project.
- To document case studies to share with other Wellcome Trust-funded research sites and internationally to raise awareness of the cultural issues about people’s relationships with food.
‘Food across the ages’ was funded by Wellcome Trust for the International Engagement Award. In cooperation with Health Education Communications Center Ho Chi Minh City, OUCRU implemented project activities with participants from Ho Chi Minh City and Mekong Delta, Vietnam.
