Eating well is essential for a healthy life. But today’s food and agricultural system is not living up to its potential of enabling healthy, sustainable diets for all, and is not performing for many farmers.
Unhealthy diet is risk factor No. 1 for the total burden of death and disease in the EU. Harmful alcohol consumption is a leading health risk with wide societal repercussions. Agriculture contributes to antibiotic resistance, climate change and environmental degradation, endangering the last century’s momentous gains in public health.
This campaign takes a systemic approach to food and drink environments and agriculture and engages to create a coherent, health sensitive, sustainable food policy for Europe.
