On 17 June 2021, 14:00-16:00 CEST, GAIN, the Netherlands Working Group on International Nutrition (NWGN) and JOGG (Healthy Youth, Healthy Future) are hosting an online independent UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) Dialogue: "Healthy cities, healthy children – a dialogue on lessons from Dutch cities’ systems approaches to prevent childhood obesity globally".
The dialogue serves to share research results from a study on what Dutch municipalities have done to address childhood overweight and obesity and to discuss how such results and lessons learned can be exchanged between cities globally.
Gerda Verburg (Scaling Up Nutrition Movement) and a representative from the Amsterdam Municipality will open the discussion and breakout rooms will allow for in-depth conversations on findings.
Insights from this event will inform the Global Dialogue: "Empowering cities and local governments to improve food systems globally" which will take place on June 28th, 2021, as well as the UNFSS in September 2021.
This Dialogue is open to everyone and we encourage your participation. If you are interested in attending this event, kindly RSVP via this form.
More information about the Dialogue can be found on the UNFSS Gateway.
