The legendary “Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT-Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food systems” released in the early 2019, will be released its Chinese Version in the Good Food Hero Summit 2019 organized by China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province, China, along with the CBCGDF’s Good Food Fund on August 16. The EAT-Lancet Commission quantitively describes a universal healthy reference diet, based on an increase in consumption of healthy foods (such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, and nuts), and a decrease in consumption of unhealthy foods (such as red meat, sugar, and refined grains) that would provide major health benefits, and also increase the likelihood of attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals. This is set against the backdrop of defined scientific boundaries that would ensure a safe operating space within six Earth systems, towards sustaining a healthy planet.


Prior to this, the CBCGDF Good Food Fund invited the initiators and writers of the EAT-Lancet report to hold a pre-conference lecture and media Q & A session on the major report about the future of mankind for the China Regional Release Conference in Beijing on August 14th.


The Associate Vice President at Yale Hospitality Mr. Rafi Taherian, who is responsible for Yale University's catering system, will also visit the Beijing Station to share the ideas and successful practices of Yale University in sustainable diet from a practical perspective.


Dr. Yuan Changzheng, a nutrition epidemiologist at Zhejiang University/Harvard University, and Dr. Wang Xiaoxi, an expert in agricultural economics, will also present a progress report on small studies on the health, environmental and economic impacts of changes in dietary structure in China.


Mr. Jian Yi, the founder of the CBCGDF Good Food Fund and a world scholar at Yale University, will explain the significance of the report from the perspective of the changes in Chinese diet. Dr. Zhou Jinfeng, the Secretary-General of CBCGDF will also be invited to conduct live dialogues with the report’s scientists.


After the launch event, it will be an open Q & A session, welcome everyone from the media and friends who care about sustainable diet and the planet to join in.
