Event Details

Learn how diet impacts the climate crisis and how policy changes can help people shift towards more healthful, sustainable eating.

A large body of evidence has shown that the impact of our food system on the environment is undeniable. This webinar with Sujatha Bergen from The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Stephanie Feldstein from The Center for Biological Diversity will outline the varying environmental impacts of popular foods in the U.S. diet, and how American menus can leverage plant-forward menus to reduce these impacts. Speakers will also highlight examples of cafeterias at universities, corporate campuses, hospitals, and other institutions that have successfully deployed these strategies. Participants will come away with a strong understanding around how the average American diet accelerates the climate and extinction crises, and how policy changes can support the nutrition community in helping people shift toward healthy, sustainable diets.
