Comida do Amanhã Institute
A non-profit, institutionally independent and non-partisan think tank that supports the transition to healthy and sustainable, inclusive and empowering, biodiverse and culturally integrated food systems.
Eating is probably the most intimate decision with the greatest overall impact.
What we eat says a lot about the world we do want, but also about the world we do have.
From a systemic view of food, and with a broad network of partners, we act with an interdisciplinary and intersectoral approach to raise awareness and impact individuals, institutions and decision makers, with two specific and interdependent goals

why a food focused think tank ?
The contemporary food system is both the cause and consequence of today's major challenges. Placing food at the center of the debate in critical, collaborative, creative and communicative ways allows for a current, high-impact look at systemic transformation - what we eat changes the world, and this is our biggest challenge and at the same time our greatest opportunity.
Obesity, malnutrition and climate change are growing interconnected and with consequences at various scales and in all territories.
relevance and contemporaneity
increasing environmental awareness + sense of urgency: Global and crescent interest in food-related content and innovation, and on how to achieve healthy diets within sustainable systems.
transversality and intersectoriality
of the food system impacts (social, cultural and environmental flows) - all inseparable and challenging.
commitment to the global agenda
The food system has impacts in all the 17 sustainable development goals and in the global environmental agenda
political and institutional inertia
in solving the problems arising from the food system.
