Launch event of the Coalition of Action on Healthy Diets from Sustainable Food Systems for Children and All

Friday, 13 May 2022

14:00 to 15:00 (CEST)

Health, nutrition and environmental sustainability need to be core, cross-cutting foundations of food systems transformation. During the United Nations Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) of 2021 the call for action to deliver healthy diets from sustainable food systems echoed through dialogues, social movements and national pathways. Formed as an outcome of the UNFSS, the Coalition of Action for Healthy Diets from Sustainable Food Systems (HDSFS) brings Member States, UN Agencies, Civil Society Organizations, Academic Institutions and social movements together to deliver on this call.
The Coalition will strive to act as a mechanism for coordinated action on healthy diets from sustainable food systems that provides countries the opportunity to share, learn and inform. It will foster, maintain and gain momentum from multiple stakeholders on the issue, and allow for all to inspire and be inspired. 
 
On Friday 13th of May 2022, join us for the official launch of the Coalition of Action for Healthy Diets from Sustainable Food Systems. The event aims to celebrate the formation of the Coalition and showcase action for HDSFS, inspire current and new members, and catalyze support towards its vision at the country, regional and global level. Members and frontrunners countries will present the planned work and showcase progress so far under the Coalition’s workplan functions.

Additional information and the agenda of the event are available here.
