In my last post I discussed the micro level of The Environmental Model.

Today we will be focussing on the meso and macro levels of The Environmental Model.


Our health is partly determined by the environment in which we live, at least to the extent that the environment plays a role in influencing the choices we make in our daily lives. To explain this, I have developed a theoretical model that assumes that our behaviour is (roughly speaking) influenced on three different environmental levels ranging from the lowest (micro) level which is your immediate personal context, through medium (meso) scale factors such as your wider social network or friendship group to the highest (macro) level which is the larger society in which you live (Figure 1).
