The topic of sustainable nutrition is increasingly relevant in political, scientific and media debates. In this context, there are different perspectives and motivations surrounding the topic. Within the project "Wissenschaftliche Koordination der Fördermaßnahme Nachhaltiges Wirtschaften" (NaWiKo), Ecologic Institute will organize a workshop on "Sustainable nutrition systems and sustainable nutrition culture – Action approaches for transformative processes and practices" on 26 September 2018 in Berlin.

Sustainable nutrition cannot be considered without looking at the underlying nutrition systems and nutrition practices. The processes, starting from the primary raw material production and ending with the disposal, need to be thought of in the context of global value chains. With a growing world population, scarce natural resources and changes in nutrition practices, nutrition systems are under increasing stress. Therefore, a systematic approach to sustainable nutrition is imperative and needs to include a cultural dimension.

The aim of the workshop will be to present policy-relevant conclusions from six research projects on the subject of sustainable nutrition and to discuss options for action and implementation for promoting sustainable food systems in Germany. The six research projects are part of the BMBF funding measure "Sustainable Management" within the Social-Ecological Research SÖF and work on various aspects of sustainable food systems.
