‘Diet Dimensions’: a case study on a sustainable diets policy game

‘Diet Dimensions’ is a live social game to help generate and inform policies for healthier and more sustainable food systems

Abstract

Current food systems face multiple challenges relating to access and affordability of nutritious diets and environmental impacts. At the same time, the world’s population is estimated to approach 10 billion by 2050. Consequently, food systems face massive, multi-dimensional challenges that require systematic and coordinated, global efforts. Sustainable Diets research presents an opportunity to explore these challenges by bringing together multiple sectors, disciplines and expertise to guide the development of local, national, regional and global policies.

This report introduces the live social game ‘Diet Dimensions’. It is a novel method of engaging researchers, policymakers and key stakeholders to generate and inform policies for healthier and more sustainable food systems.
