How can we keep our diet within the planetary boundaries

The aim of this symposium is to explore which dietary changes are needed in the future to stay within the planetary boundaries (eg. global shift towards healthy and more plant-based diets, halving food loss and waste) and how we can involve all stakeholders (from policy makers to consumers) to adopt a more healthy and environmentally-friendly diet.
