This was the first time the IUNS Capacity and Leadership Development Workshop was held online. The event was a great success, and all the participants enjoyed the workshop and actively participating in the discussion.
Participants of the workshop watched 9 video lectures related to food system and nutrition intervention for sustainable healthy diets in advance in November and attended the workshop online on December 11th and 12th.
During the workshop, participants were divided into 6 groups in breakout rooms and discussed each topic after their brief self-introduction and country report. Then, one of the participants in each group presented the summary of discussion in the main room at the end of the workshop.
The IUNS Committee of Science Council of Japan prepared an abstract book that contains slides of 9 video lectures, participant country reports, and summaries of group discussion.
