General assembly 2021 (ONLINE) Sustainable and healthy food

Background and context

In the coming decades, the world's population - and thus the world's food needs - will continue to grow steadily and the negative effects of climate change on food production will become increasingly apparent. Moreover, according to current forecasts, the “burden of disease” related to nutrition - both from overnutrition and undernutrition - will continue to grow.

The "food system" - from food production to food consumption - is increasingly under pressure from all these problems and must inevitably and urgently adapt to the pressing challenges ahead.

This will require creative solutions at all levels involved: agriculture, food processing, distribution, consumption, social context of food, etc.

The Superior Health Council pays special attention to these multidisciplinary dimensions of food in many dossiers and is also expanding its portfolio of activities in this direction. In this way, it wants to strive maximally to fulfil its mission in the area of nutrition and public health.

With this seminar - which because of the current corona situation will take place online - the Superior Health Council wants to contribute to the creation of a much-needed multi-sectoral dynamic that can lead to the development of new, resilient and socially supported sustainable and healthy concepts of food production and consumption.

It promises to be an exciting morning.
We warmly welcome you to join us.
