The workshop aims to explore the multi-faceted aspects of food and health in cities from both an individual and a planetary health perspective. Presentations will look at existing evidence of the physical and mental health impacts of participation in urban food initiatives, including community gardens and the ways in which universities and other stakeholders are building evidence and supporting sustainable food systems.
