Live Well For Life
In October 2011, WWF and Friends of Europe started a 3-year project - LiveWell for LIFE - co-financed through the European Commission’s environment fund LIFE+.
The project aims at better understanding the linkages between unsustainable food consumption, GHG emissions, and climate change. It will develop potential win-win policy scenarios which demonstrate that what is good for the health of our planet is good for our health too.
LiveWell for LIFE will establish the viability of an EU-wide introduction of the LiveWell Plate developed by WWF-UK. This is a tool that defines what healthy and sustainable diets could look like for different European countries.
In a nutshell, by eating more vegetables, fruit and carbohydrates, less meat and processed foods we will not only be healthier but also reduce the impact of food production on the planet.
