Participate in a webinar on healthy and climate-friendly diets

Monday 25 Apr 22

The full programme is now ready for a webinar on what we can do to promote a healthy and climate-friendly diet. Come and hear at a webinar on 2 May at 9-12, which the DTU National Food Institute arranges on the occasion of the World Food Summit 2022.

If the world community is to achieve the goals of the advice of the UN Climate Panel, the climate footprint from food consumption must be significantly reduced. How can researchers, consumers, authorities and food companies contribute to achieving the UN goals and help promote a healthier and more climate-friendly diet? This will be the topic of a webinar the DTU National Food Institute invites to on 2 May at 9-12. 

The webinar is a side event in the World Food Summit 2022, initiated by the Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries.
Researchers and others within in the food system will give short inspiring presentations that will focus on:

  • Data and methods for calculating the climate footprint of food - and other parameters that can contribute to a broader understanding of food sustainability
  • Experience in implementing new national, climate-friendly dietary guidelines in practice
  • Status and perspectives in relation to establishing minimum criteria for sustainable procurement of public food
  • Tools to motivate producers and consumers to make more sustainable and climate-friendly choices
  • Overview of sustainable and climate-friendly dietary advice in different countries.

There will be time for dialogue and questions.
