Uppsala Health Summit 2022: Healthy lives from sustainable food systems
Date: October 25, 2022 - October 26, 2022
Uppsala Health Summit is a recurring international policy arena for dialogue on challenges for health and healthcare, and how we can overcome them. Decision-makers, opinion-makers and experts participate in active dialogue in thoroughly prepared workshops and plenum sessions.
Food lies at the heart of both health and sustainable development, yet our current food systems are “making us ill, driving climatic change and undermining the health of ecosystems and the essential services on which our health and well-being depend” (WHO). COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine have made matters worse and sparked a global food crisis. As always, it is the most marginalized and excluded who are the hardest hit.
Through a Summit dedicated to this topic, and with a special focus on health – we are hoping to help countries in the shift towards more sustainable and resilient food systems. By convening actors from different sectors, we aim to break down siloes and discuss policy and evidence-based implementation.
