What’s cooking? Sustainable healthy diets

Spurningaskrá 2022-2

Dear participant

The purpose of the questionnaire is to collect information about the experiences and perspectives of people who have dedicated themselves to sustainable, healthy diets in Iceland. That can be vegans or vegetarians, flexitarians, consumers of organic food products, locally produced food products or others who consciously eat with regard to the environment, animal welfare or their own health.

The questionnaire is part of the project “Sustainable healthy diets: Filling the gaps and paving the way for a sustainable future”. It is a multi-disciplinary collaboration between academics from different fields, looking into people’s various diets with regards to both carbon footprint and health benefits. The aim is to provide policy makers, public health experts and the public itself with sufficient data to make informed decisions on how to transform food production and dietary habits in Iceland towards a more sustainable direction.

We therefore look for help to people who have already taken up such diets in their daily lives, in order to learn from their experience. What made you turn to this kind of diet, and how do you manage to sustain it? What attitudes and perspectives are involved? What are the main challenges you have encountered? We appreciate if your answers are detailed and descriptive; we are curious about all sorts of information related to the subject. If you have any concrete examples from your daily life, please include them. You can skip any questions that do not appeal to you.

Three lucky participants who submit sufficient responses to this questionnaire by the 31 March 2022 will be drawn out to receive the prize of a 10-week vegetable subscription from the ecological farm Flight Song Farm in Grímsnes, throughout the summer of 2022. For more information on the farm and their offerings, see their Facebook page

When you are ready to start, you press the button “answer questionaire" (Svara spurningaskrá).

You can choose whether your responses are preserved with your name or anonymously. Before you start the questionnaire, we ask you to provide some personal background information. This information will be non-identifiable by name. It is important that you read through the terms below before you provide your answers. Please note that the answer box grows automatically as you type into it; its original size has nothing to do with how long your answer can be – the more descriptions, details and information that you can provide, the better for the project.

It is not possible to save individual answers, but it is possible to leave the questionnaire and come back to it later if the browser window stays open and the device is not turned off. We recommend typing your answers first into a word processor and then to copy/paste them into the questionnaire fields. When you have completed the questionnaire, you press the button “finished” and your responses will be recorded directly into the Ethnological Collection of the National Museum of Iceland.
