Empowering Nutrition Professionals to Advance Sustainable Food Systems
Sep 23, 2021 12:30-2:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Join Food + Planet, Diet ID, and leading health expert panelists at the global launch of Food + Planet’s White paper on September 23rd.
The message is clear: The time to transform the food system is now. Our current food system is one of the single largest pressures on our planet, threatening the very operating systems of Earth itself. And a cascade of recent global reports cite the urgent need to evolve modern food systems to become more equitable, sustainable, culturally responsive and diverse. Nutrition professionals are a critical component of how we might get there.
Launching in conjunction with the UN Food Systems Summit, this webinar will share key findings from Food + Planet’s new White Paper- featuring 8 essential strategies of how nutrition professionals can accelerate the transition to more just and sustainable food systems in their practices and in our profession.
The paper also conducted a scoping review that investigated alignments and differences across healthy and sustainable diet recommendations from landmark global reports and national food based dietary guidelines.
After sharing key insights and solutions, Food + Planet will moderate a conversation around empowering nutrition professionals potential to build sustainable food systems with:
- Dr. Selena Ahmed, PhD, Associate Professor, Montana State University, Co-Founder Shoots & Roots Bitters
- Becky Ramsing, MPH, RDN, Senior Program Officer, Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future
- Dr. David Katz, MD, MPH, Founder and CEO, Diet ID, Founder and President, True Health Initiative
- Liesel Carlsson, PhD., Assistant Professor, Acadia University, ICDA Food Sustainability Initiative.
Identifying current barriers and highlighting key leverage points for nutrition professionals to engage, we can begin to unlock the vast potential of this global community to help accelerate the transition to more sustainable, regenerative, and equitable food systems.

Proudly presented our workshop virtually at ICDA, focused on the four dimensions of sustainable food systems.
The joint crises related to public health, food insecurity and climate change are driving urgency toward a more sustainable food system. We need collaborative solutions that help keep people well, enhance food access and minimize further environmental impacts in order to nourish our growing population without depleting natural resources. Nutrition experts, including registered dietitians, can lead the charge and drive education toward the adoption of practical, healthy, sustainable diets that are good for people and the planet.
