On August 1 and 2, 2018, the Food Forum hosted a public workshop in Washington, DC, on sustainable diets, food, and nutrition. The workshop was organized into four main sessions and a closing panel discussion. The workshop objectives were to review current and emerging knowledge on the concept of sustainable diets within the field of food and nutrition; explore sustainable diets and relevant impacts for cross-sector partnerships, policy, and research; and discuss how sustainable diets influence dietary patterns, the food system, and population and public health.
