Biodiversity, Food Sovereignty and Sustainability
02.07.19 | 14h . 21h30 | Firjan House
Food is revolutionary.
The loss of biodiversity, the increase in childhood obesity and the intensive production of animal protein put Brazil in the middle of a necessary, urgent and fact-based global discussion. We live in a moment of immense challenges and infinite possibilities - food in the center of the greatest pandemics and a powerful instrument to bring the most revolutionary solutions.
Starting with the national launch of the report "Food, Planet, Health", of the EAT-Lancet commission, we challenge the greatest national experts, chefs, university, social movements to open the thought on the question:
What are the challenges, opportunities and possibilities for a Planetary Diet, which respects the limits of the planet and promotes human health in Brazil?
From big issues to local solutions
Local solutions for changing paradigms
for a Planetary Diet

Food, Planet, Health.
Independent release of the Portuguese version of the EAT-Lancet
2:30 pm. 14h45
Healthy diets and sustainable production are now side by side, based on science. The EAT-Lancet committee report brings to the fore deeper debates about food systems. If the challenges are great, in the case of Brazil, which has one of the greatest biodiversities in the world, together with a high rate of inequality and a high increase in food-related diseases, the report and its results make it urgent to look and act for a change political, social and epistemological on how food is being addressed in recent decades.
We will launch the Portuguese version of the report, and discuss the reality of healthy diets and sustainable food systems in the Brazilian context.
The launch will be carried out together with a representative of the EAT-Lancet commission (to be defined).

If food is revolutionary, change exists in the kitchen. This is not (just) a cookbook proposes to bring 12 articles from national experts to the kitchen on the national context of food systems and diets, while bringing 34 recipes from different territories to specialized reading, bringing communities together urban, indigenous, caiçaras and quilombolas communities, with chefs such as Bela Gil, Bel Coelho, Teresa Corção, Roberta Ciasca, Francine Xavier, Gabriela Kapim, Ronaldo Canha, Ciça Roxo (among others).
A book that is not (only) about recipes, but a provocation and a reflection on how to understand a Planetary Diet that is attentive to the local context, traditions, health and the planet, starting from a Brazilian perspective, its challenges and practices.
