Online-Symposium: The Future of Food

Internationales Symposium in englischer Sprache

Die KLUG – Deutsche Allianz Klimawandel & Gesundheit e.V. und das Center for International Health der LMU München laden herzlich zum Ernährungssymposium ein!

Unsere derzeitiges Ernährungs- und Landnutzungssystem spielt eine entscheidende Rolle bei verschiedenen globalen Krisen, vom Klimawandel und dem Verlust der biologischen Vielfalt bis hin zu Unterernährung und wirtschaftlicher Ungleichheit. Doch gleichzeitig bietet es auch einige der vielversprechendsten Möglichkeiten für nachhaltige und zukunftsfähige Lösungen. Um die derzeitige Lage unseres Ernährungssystem zu beleuchten und darauf zu blicken, wie es nachhaltiger und resilienter gestaltet werden kann, veranstaltet die Deutsche Allianz Klimawandel und Gesundheit (KLUG e.V) gemeinsam mit dem Center for International Health des LMU Klinikums München (CIHLMU) ein internationales Symposium.

English Translation:
