Talking food and climate - how sustainable is your diet?
The way we produce food and the way we eat affects more than just our health, it also has a significant impact on our planet and climate. Decisions made at each step of the food supply chain, from paddock to plate, present opportunities to protect our natural resources. A whole-of-system approach is urgently required to shift both food production and consumption practices.
Join Advanced Accredited Practicing Dietitian Liza Barbour from the Department of Nutrition, Dietetics and Food, to learn more about healthy and sustainable diets, and a range of policy interventions we can advocate for to promote a population-level shift towards these diet-related practices.
