In the past few years there have been a plethora of recommendations for a shift in global diet to sustain a healthy planet and population. In this session we’ll explore the science behind the latest recommendations from EAT Lancet and consider what a sustainable diet needs to achieve. How will we know we are on the right path? And, do we really need such a monumental full-scale dietary shift to safeguard the future of our planet and the health of humankind?
