Beskrivning av samhällsfrågan

Sustainable future urbanisms depend on healthy lifestyle for urban citizens. How can India's traditional focus on climate friendly grains and food circularity facilitate the creation of a new sustainable food system for a more planet friendly urban life?

Utökad information om evenemanget

Food and health are directly and intricately connected to each other. One of the key urban challenges for India is to create an urban food system whose carbon footprint is minimal, but at the same time reflects the diversity of food cultures in India and promotes indigenous and local grains, seeds and foods while contributing to creating a healthier lifestyle for urban citizens. Urban India is already facing several health challenges ranging from large scale diabetes to obesity and malnutrition directly emanating from current food systems and lifestyles. From the perspectives of technology, lifestyle and markets, the key question discussed in the panel is: How can India revive its traditional focus on climate friendly grains and food circularity that could be the key learning for the world in facilitating the creation of a new sustainable food system for a more planet friendly urban life?
