Re-fashioning food systems with sustainable diet guidelines: towards a SDG² strategy
By Tim Lang, Professor of Food Policy, Centre for Food Policy, City, University of London
In this joint paper with Friends of the Earth’s Big Ideas project, Tim Lang charts the policy progress of sustainable dietary guidelines, setting out a compelling case for their adoption to tackle health inequalities and environmental and social harm caused by current eating patterns. He shows that while official progress is slow, a host of new actors and activists – from cities and local authorities to academics and progressive businesses – are emerging to take the lead in making sustainable diets a reality from the bottom up.
