23rd IUHPE World Conference on Health Promotion, 7 - 11 April 2019, Rotorua, Aotearoa New Zealand

The Great Intergenerational Food Transformation: Findings from two recent Lancet Commissions

Millennium Hotel, Millennium Room 5
Sunday 7 April, 1300-1530hrs

The EAT-Lancet Commission recently published its report on healthy and sustainable diets in the Anthropocene – how can we feed a planet healthy food AND stay within planetary boundaries?

Shortly after, the Lancet Commission on obesity published its report on The Global Syndemic of obesity, undernutrition and climate change – what are the systemic, triple-duty actions that can address all three of these pandemics?

Boyd and Sudhvir will present an overview of the reports and will be joined by experts and practitioners to discuss what this means for New Zealand — a country where food is simultaneously the biggest contributor to ill health, greenhouse gases and export earnings.

The symposium will be facilitated by Prof Harry Rutter, University of Bath. Invited respondents and panel members will be Prof Fran Baum (Distinguished Professor, Flinders University, Adelaide), Dr Colin Tukuitonga (Director General of the Pacific Community, Noumea), Dr Shu-Ti Chiou (Founder & President, Health & Sustainable Development Foundation, Taiwan), Tania Tapsell (lead Councillor for sustainability and youth, Rotorua Lakes Council).
