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.
