Sustainable nutrition for climate action: enablers and barriers to shifting to more sustainable food choices

Our research is called Okuphilisayo Kusembizeni – Healing is in the Pot. It is centered on learning actions around sustainable food choices and how these can make a positive contribution to climate action, as well as enabling people to live healthier lives. We have put together a team of people who would like to learn more, share indigenous knowledge and experiences, explore new tastes, live healthier lives and care about the problems our planet is facing. As part of the transformative experience we will be tracking the learnings from our team as they try out different recipes and share what they have learned with their wider communities.
