Theme: Healthy lives from sustainable food systems
Food lies at the heart of both health and sustainable development, yet our current food systems are “making us ill, driving climatic change and undermining the health of ecosystems and the essential services on which our health and well-being depend (WHO). COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine have made matters worse and sparked a global food crisis. As always, it is the most marginalized and excluded who are the hardest hit.
Through a Summit dedicated to this topic, and with a special focus on health - we are hoping to help countries in the shift towards more sustainable and resilient food systems. By convening actors from different sectors, we aim to break down siloes and discuss policy and evidence-based implementation.
Nine workshops are currently being planned by members of our scientific programme committee and the plenary programme is taking shape. Read more here to find out about the background to this year's theme and stay tuned for programme updates!
