Is it possible to feed a future population of 10 billion people a healthy diet within planetary boundaries? 

Four years ago, this question was posed to a group of doctors and dieticians from all over the world, and their response became the Planetary Health Diet – a way of eating created by scientists to bring together the health needs of humans with what our planet can afford.

By exploring simple food principles, the Planetary Health Diet charts a way to solve major health issues, and balance human needs with our impact on the environment in the age of climate change. Join public health advocate and CEO of VicHealth Sandro Demaio for a keynote talk, followed by a panel discussion with Alexandra Jones from The George Institute for Global Health, clinical dietician Jennifer Cohen and director of That Sugar Film, Damon Gameau as they discuss how we can all eat better and contribute to a healthier world.
