Appetites for change: The power of food for a healthy and prosperous planet @ Stockholm + 50

This event provides a concrete opportunity to continue the amplification of sustainable food systems, and push to integrate them into the UNCCD, UNCBD and UNFCCC Conferences of Parties negotiations and outcomes.

Nature and food systems are inextricably connected. Together they should thrive and rely on the services each provide. However, we are far from this vision. Food systems today destabilize our planet and fail to provide all people with healthy and nutritious diets that stay within planetary boundaries. Sustainable production, consumption, and the fight against pollution are key thematic areas of the Leadership Dialogues at Stockholm+50. For each, sustainable food systems are highlighted as a key arena in which we may drive interventions that benefit human health, planetary health, and livelihoods.
Stockholm +50 comes less than a year after the UN Food Systems Summit, which generated unprecedented awareness on the need to adopt sustainable food systems approaches. The summit led to over 100 countries developing National Pathways for food systems transformation.
This event provides a concrete opportunity to continue the amplification of sustainable food systems, and push to integrate them into the UNCCD, UNCBD and UNFCCC Conferences of Parties negotiations and outcomes. Appetites for Change offers space to highlight champion countries, cities, and communities that have implemented critical system-based solutions. With experts, these sessions will advance our understanding of how we may contribute to sustainable food systems that deliver human and planetary prosperity. 
Alexander Mueller, Managing Director of TMG Research will give a keynote speech on 'THE POWER OF FOOD SYSTEMS THINKING' laying out why decision-makers need to adopt a systems-based approach to resolve complex interrelated issues such as those found in our food systems.
