The Health and Medicine Division of the National Academies of Sciences (NASEM) is organizing a virtual workshop that focuses on the integration of the health, societal, economic, and environmental effects and future needs of the food system on July 22 and 23.
The event titled “Healthy People, Healthy Planet: Building a More Sustainable, Resilient, Equitable, and Nourishing Food System” will be hosted by the Food Forum.
“The main objective is to understand how to achieve a resilient food system in 2050 that provides access to safe and nutritious food with environmental and economic sustainability,” the event brief says.
“Workshop presenters will explore three main dimensions of the food system: vulnerabilities, resiliency, and transformation. The workshop will include discussions on global change, access to health and food, resiliency in complex dynamic systems and resiliency for the future, and consumption- and production-oriented strategies to transform the food system.”
The workshop will be in three sessions: 1) Vulnerabilities of the Food System (July 22, 10 am ET – 12:30 pm ET), 2) Resiliency of the Food System (July 22, 1:30 pm ET – 4 pm ET), 3) Transformation of the Food System (July 23, 10 am ET – 1 pm ET)
