About Us

Our Mission

The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF) works with students, educators, researchers, policymakers, advocacy organizations and communities to build a healthier, more equitable and resilient food system.

Our Affiliation

The Center for a Livable Future (CLF) operates out of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, from the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering.

25 Years Strong

The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future is celebrating more than 25 years of advocating for food system change and protecting the public’s health.

CLF Perspectives on Food Animal Production

In this series, we interview scientists, community activists, and other experts who offer nuanced, complex takes on livestock production, the issues associated with the current production models, and ideas about solutions.

Our Contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals

The Center’s work aligns with many of the United Nations’ 2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in different ways. Because we operate at the intersection of public health and food systems, our work naturally contributes to a cross-section of the SDGs, especially the goals related to ending poverty, ending hunger and malnutrition, and achieving good health and wellbeing.
