Diet, Health & Planetary Boundaries
What we eat and how we produce it have significant effects on ecosystems beyond climate change, affecting land use, soil health, air and water quality, biodiversity, and, by virtue of these, human health. The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future explores these connections and provides scientific advice on shifting toward diets that better align with public health and ecological goals through programs such as Meatless Monday, as well as research in modeling, policy and communications.
