Stage 1. Do it Yourself
Many of the solutions we've developed are designed to be easily used by you, your company, restaurants, grocery stores, or your child's school. You can at least get off to a strong start that way. Use the tools and guides on each page to see what "Works for me."
From being happier or healthier to having better relationships or being better parents, real people hold many of the secrets and solutions.
Real Citizen Science helps discover these solutions, helps test them more broadly, helps improve them, and share them as evidence-based, scientific solutions.
Many these Real Citizen Science projects originated at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Cornell University and focused mainly on eating behavior. But they have now expanded to include new topics and scholars in France and the Netherlands as well as in Norway, Finland, the UK, Germany, Israel, Korea, China, and Brazil.
All of these projects involve researchers and real citizens teaming together to discover how to help make people happier and healthier.
