Scope and objectives
The main objectives of the thematic session are to:
- Explore how to define and promote healthy and sustainable diets (e.g., that meet climate and biodiversity targets, are socially acceptable, affordable, and adaptable to individual values and preferences).
- Understand which incremental and transformational changes to current food systems are needed to ensure sustainable and healthy diets for all.
- Discuss scientific alternatives for how to incorporate sustainability targets into dietary recommendations and food based dietary guidelines (FBDGs) and explore opportunities for changes to consumer behaviour in Europe to foster the shift towards healthier and more sustainable diets.
- Discuss policy options to transform food systems and steer consumer behaviour to meet sustainability goals and better understand how academia, risk assessors, policy makers and the food industry could foster the implementation of such a transformation.
