There is a growing interest and belief in the potentials of local community interventions. While governance of healthy eating at the macro level seems to be obscured by complex relations between lobbyists and governments, the interest in interventions in local communities continues to grow. Such interventions seems to be able to evolve through the commitment of local community stakeholders and to work through pathways of governance at different levels. This paper presents insights from such governance taking place in the local community project SoL at the isle of Bornholm.. This paper reflects on how the local community shapes new local governance. It reports on perspectives and limitations in how citizens, media, front workers and politicians engage in partnership working to regulate and govern human behaviors and their health status. It discusses participatory approaches and how different scientific domains and paradigms can work together in order to provide health for citizens in local communities.
