The Double Pyramid connecting food culture, health and climate

Food affects every aspect of our life: from health, well-being, and longevity, to the condition and state of environmental resources, economic development and social stability. Today, we face the major challenge of resetting food systems from farm to fork, as they are currently failing to provide adequate and equitable food for all, while posing an unsustainable burden on ecosystems and natural resources.

Health and the environment need to be considered together when addressing such challenge.

A one health approach to food

In this context, the event, by celebrating the richness and diversity of dietary traditions and cultures across the globe, aims to contribute in empowering citizens to make healthy and sustainable food choices, facilitating the adoption of sustainable diets as a driver to improve health and wellbeing, tackle climate change, accelerate the achievement of poverty reduction and social inclusion; increasing fairness and equality; biodiversity conservation and water security towards the achievement of UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The event, organized under the patronage of the Italian National Commission for UNESCO, involved various stakeholders - institutions, policy makers, academia and chefs – in a global and multidisciplinary discussion, around the concept of “One-Health”, summarized by the Double Pyramid model.
