WHO Health Week – Faith and Food Systems Reflections

June 17, 2021

On Thursday, June 10th the Parliament of the World’s Religions joined the Center for Earth Ethics for the program “WHO Health Week – Faith and Food Systems Reflections”.

To contribute to the UN Food Systems Summit, the Faith + Food Coalition hosted five separate interfaith, multi-stakeholder dialogues corresponding to each of the five Action Tracks. The objective of the dialogues was to explore how faith communities – including Indigenous communities – can support the transformation of global food systems to being sustainable, accessible, equitable, and regenerative. This panel reflects on the dialogues and offer insights into increased faith engagement leading up to the Food Systems Summit and beyond.
