Last week, 14 global cities signed up to the C40 Good Food Cities Declaration, committing to promote the Planetary Health Diet. City mayors will work with their citizens and introduce policies to encourage more balanced, affordable and sustainable diets as well as reduce food waste. The signatories include: Barcelona, Copenhagen, Guadalajara, Lima, London, Los Angeles, Milan, Oslo, Paris, Quezon City, Seoul, Stockholm, Tokyo and Toronto.
The Declaration consists of commitments to align with The Eat-Lancet Commission’s Planetary Health Diet. The Diet, published in January 2019, consists of diverse sustainable and nutritious foods that can not only feed the growing global population, but can reduce undernutrition and the negative environmental consequences of agriculture, too.
