A planetary healthy diet means that people should be able to feed themselves locally and sustainably and to live in a tobacco-free environment.

There is knowledge and there are plenty of practical ideas and best practice examples. What’s lacking is the political will to put both human and environmental health before the profits of global food and tobacco corporations. In response to government interventions in the name of public health, food corporations are using the same strategies that tobacco companies have used for decades.

But tobacco control has shown which policies are successful in limiting corporate power: taxes, advertising bans, information. In the area of nutrition, there are even more opportunities, and community catering could play a pioneering role in planetary health diets.

In our webinar we want to discuss how to get policy makers to adopt policies that protect public health and the planet. Join us for our three-course meal !
