Inbjudan: pre-conference of the EPH Conference
1 november välkomnas du till Stockholmsmässan och EPH conference’s pre-conference med rubriken:
Healthy meals – a way to environmental, economic and social sustainability?
The food we eat, how we eat it, and the way we produce it has a bearing on most of the Sustainable Development Goals in Agenda 2030 and the overall aim of this pre-conference is to highlight this.
Healthy meals are of special relevance to the issue of sustainability, having a large impact on several aspects, for example, environmental, economic and social. The published report from the EUPHA section on Food and Nutrition illustrates the relationship between healthy and sustainable diets. Specifically, given the importance of publicly-financed meals in Sweden, host of the EPH Conference 2017, we would like to shine a light on these types of meals as a way to reach greater overall sustainability.
This pre-conference aims to reflect upon certain issues central to more sustainable meals. The importance of plant-based diets will be highlighted, and the impact of production methods and consumption patterns will be touched upon, taking procurement practices and waste into consideration. The pre-conference will present both the theoretical background and share some practical examples.
