Floriade Dialogue #9

Sustainable consumption


Webinar ‘Floriade Dialogue #9 | Sustainable consumption: Global (Food) Waste Reduction and food policy’ took place on World Food Day 2020, 16 October. Theme: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns (SDG 12).


Floriade Dialogues is the knowledge exchange programme of the Floriade Expo 2022 on the Floriade central theme: ‘Growing Green Cities’. In each Dialogue one of the four Floriade subthemes will be the leading theme: ‘Green, Food, Health or Energy’. In light of the pandemic Covid-19 outbreak we changed from face to face Floriade Dialogue meetings to a monthly series of webinars until the end of this year.


This Floriade Dialogue Webinar brought together global expertise on effective behavioural change, related to food consumption. The dialogue focused on some interesting topics around social mechanisms and effective programmes in their way to leverage Sustainable and Healthy Food Consumption.
