BALANCE PRODUCTION / CONSUMPTION Animal farming for Humans’ well-being and planetary health

Health
Date: Wednesday, 07 November 2018 09:00 - 16:45

Venue: University Foundation, Brussels  |  City: Brussels

It is often communicated in the media and among the general public that European citizens should reduce their consumption of animal products/proteins. Very often, the justification is both based on human health and sustainability point of views (use of resources, impact on climate, environmental footprint, AMR, animal welfare…). Can we find a consensus on recommended shares of animal products in our diets, at the junction of human health and planetary health? What share of animal-derived food in our diet is desirable from the environmental and health point of views? What does it mean for animal production in the EU and globally?

Format of the ATF Seminar
The session would like to engage discussion with farmers, food processors, industries, retailers, nutritionists, scientists, policy-makers and also with the society. The ATF seminar is a follow-up of the ATF-EAAP special session (27th Aug. 2018 – Dubrovnik, Croatia). The most important findings of the session will be discussed with a panel.
Aim
The ATF seminar aims to contribute to:
  • Engage a dialogue with various stakeholders;
  • Support knowledge development and innovation, foster ownership by farmers and industries;
  • Address how research and innovation can help the livestock sector;
  • Provide input to European research and innovation agendas and to public policies to secure Europe’s role as a leading global provider of safe and healthy animal-derived products.
