Teaching the Food System

A Project of the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future


Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future

As the world's population and consumer demand continue to grow, there is urgent need to improve human health, prevent disease, and meet basic needs for food, water and shelter equitably for all people. The challenge of our time is to meet these goals as population increases, while protecting the environment, preserving biodiversity, and conserving finite resources to meet the needs of future generations.

The Center’s work is driven by the concept that public health, diet, food production, and the environment are deeply interrelated and that understanding these relationships is crucial in pursuing a livable future. Actions within one area invariably affect others, sometimes in unpredictable ways. Teaching the Food System is an extension of the Center’s work to increase awareness of these relationships.
