Part of Nutrition Resource Centre’s Eating for the 21st Century webinar series, a new webinar series about rethinking Canada’s dietary recommendations in light of current health, social, political and environmental challenges.
This century is a turning point for life on earth. The threats of climate degradation, pollution and waste must be countered by ensuring all human activities and systems, including those related to food, are sustainable. The sustainability – or unsustainability – of food systems can be driven by food choices. Accordingly, understanding the interrelationship between diets, human health and planetary sustainability, and how these interactions can be integrated into dietary recommendations, are crucial to ensuring the well-being of the biosphere and human societies.
