Diet for a Green Planet is one of three concepts developed by the BERAS (2003-2006) and BERAS Implementation (2010-2013) projects and that continue to be developed by BERAS International Foundation.
The concepts are:
Together these three concepts form a holistic understanding of the food system.
Diet for a Green Planet is relevant for anyone who eats, but more specifically for catering, dietists, chefs and for professionals related to planning of diets and menus.
Ecological Regenerative Agriculture (ERA) is in the first hand relevant for farmers and professionals related to agriculture.
Sustainable Food Societies is in the first hand for other primary producers and actors in the food chain, local and regional governments and civil society actors. But the three concepts should also be seen as one whole. Everyone has a stake in all three - even though there is a personal or professional focus on one.
It should be noted that these concepts are living and developing with time and with experiences of being practiced in different ways in different regions and conditions. The three concepts are made to awaken creativity and innovation - and that is why they can be applied under the most different ground conditions.
The two BERAS projects developed as well research reports and education materials as follow up projects and networks. To access these – please go to the BERAS Library. The materials are when not otherwise stated co-funded by EU and are available for free download.
