Sustainable and healthy diets

Network on Education in Public Health Nutrition invites bachelor and master students to a one-week summer course in Oslo.


Sustainable production and consumption are both parts of a greener future and it is important that health professionals aiming to work in these sectors have knowledge on this.

Food systems, food cultures, nutrient recommendations and dietary guidelines are key concepts in public health nutrition. How to produce food, what foods are good for human and planetary health as well as what foods people prefer to consume are questions concerning sustainability of diets.

In addition to environmental aspects of sustainability, social sustainability needs to be addressed. Food and dietary habits contribute significantly to health inequalities. Different aspects of sustainability, such as economic growth, social inclusion and environmental protection are all interconnected and crucial for the wellbeing of individuals and societies.
