HSPH Eating for a healthy body and a healthy planet
Our diets clearly affect our health — and they may also determine the future of our planet. In this panel on Wednesday, March 1 at 12pm ET, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health will examine the connections between personal and planetary health, with a particular emphasis on how our dietary choices can influence climate change, antibiotic resistance, and food security. Expert panelists will explore concepts including mindful eating, cultivated meat, and “blue” diets rooted in the ocean. They’ll also talk about sustainable agricultural practices. By looking at where and how our food is sourced, we’ll be able to evaluate both the health and the environmental impact of our meals.
An on-demand video will be posted after the event.
