[Vancouver Conference] The psychology of change: Achieving a transformation of the global food system

An urgent health and environmental challenge is how to provide nearly 10 billion people with healthy and sustainable diets by 2050. Currently, the types of food we eat, the ways we produce it, and the amount wasted or lost threatens human health and environmental sustainability while also contributing to climate change. Psychology can help intervene in the human behaviours that contribute to unsustainable methods and promote the changes required to transform the global food system.

During this colloquium, a group of experts will discuss findings from the recently published EAT-Lancet reporton Healthy Diets from Sustainable Food Systems and the newly revamped Canadian Food Guide to explore how this knowledge can be used to create a food system transformation locally and globally.
