Our knowledge of obesogenic environments has leapt forwards in the last decade. We have a deeper understanding of the incentives to over-consume, the design of food environments, and the underlying systems that are creating the rising global health crisis. Can we turn our knowledge into practical solutions?
The side-event will focus on new and pioneering developments in policies and practices. Examples will be drawn from urban food environments (foodscapes), from government-level commitments to UN-level policies, and from the recent Lancet Commissions on sustainable food supplies and the 'global syndemic' of obesity, under-nutrition and global warming. The side-event will focus on practical approaches to achieve triple-action 'win-win-wins' for sustainable food systems.
