Shaping our dietary patterns for better human and planetary health.

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.
