July 13, debate in WFC: "How to proceed after the PAS?"

On Saturday, July 13, Foodlog is organizing a debate at the World Food Center in Ede (location Akoesticum) about the consequences of the PAS (Nitrogen Approach Program). Consequences for farmers, but also for biodiversity and food production. No doubt a lively debate! click here to register (free of charge!).

The Nitrogen Approach Program (PAS) had to curb nitrogen pollution in the Netherlands. For years, lawyers and action groups warned that the regulations that the Netherlands made up cannot be reconciled with European legislation. Recent the Council of State took a thick line through the PAS.

Why did the Dutch government and politics opt for that impassable path? How will these motives play a role again in the expected repairs to the legislation and regulations that will now take place shortly? Where will mistakes be made again?

On Saturday, July 13 next we will discuss those questions in a publicly available interview, organized by Foodlog. A number of connoisseurs will clarify the file and their current situation from their different perspectives.

Purpose: to inform politicians, press, officials and interested public in 2 hours about the ins & outs and do's & don'ts of the file. Entrance is free.

June 6: Annual Congress Healthy Innovation

While the realization of the World Food Center Experience itself has yet to begin, we are seeing the WFC site increasingly filled with food-related activities and initiatives.

Completely in line with the objectives of the World Food Center to work on raising awareness about the role of nutrition, and promoting a more sustainable, healthier lifestyle, the second edition of the Annual Healthy Innovation Congress place on the WFC site. This time at the beautiful location of the Akoesticum, the national training center for music, dance and theater.

This year's congress, organized by Foodlog, is about sugar. Less sugar in products, lifestyle and environment. How can you achieve that as effortlessly, tastefully and healthily as possible?

Is sugar 'the new smoking', 'the new fat', or even worse: 'poison'?

Sugar is naturally the gasoline on which our engine runs; fat is the emergency battery. But sugar has developed in recent decades into a serious threat to public health. We get a lot with our food and drinks too much sugar inside. To completely ban sugar is to break the other side, but it seems undisputed that it has to be considerably less.

Triple perspective 
The conference deals with three main themes Healthy Innovation the issues surrounding sugar: the product itself, the food environment in which it is offered and the lifestyle of consumers.

Do it together
Confusion in science and media, distrust in parties with an interest, and the hesitant policy on nutrition and health call for an integrated approach to the complex matter. How do you manage that?

The government is making a coordinating effort with it prevention agreement. Supermarkets choose one food traffic light. Will it deliver what policy makers hope for?

In the World Food Center, the place for the food debate, Foodlog organizes the Annual Congress Healthy Innovation, to get the chain as a whole, including consumers and governments, in motion.
