The SWITCH Project is pleased to announce the launch of its inaugural Project Magazine.

29 June 2024 – The SWITCH Project is proud to announce the launch of the first edition of its Project Magazine. This comprehensive publication provides an engaging and detailed overview of the progress and achievements made during the first eighteen months of the SWITCH Project, funded by the European Union under Horizon Europe.

The SWITCH Project is committed to transforming European food systems to facilitate a just, healthy, and sustainable food transition through the application of knowledge and innovation. This ambitious initiative aims to disseminate best practices related to sustainable diets, ensuring that they are not only understood but also implemented across various European regions where the project’s hubs are actively engaging communities.

The magazine not only disseminates scientific findings in a clear and captivating manner but also highlights the innovative aspects of the SWITCH Project. By focusing on the entire food supply chain, from production to consumption, SWITCH aims to foster a broader awareness and adoption of healthy and sustainable food systems within the European Union. The project addresses training gaps and accessibility issues to support the large-scale adoption of healthy dietary patterns, in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Please visit switchdiet.eu/magazine to access the first edition of the SWITCH Magazine, which will be available online from Saturday, 29th June.

The SWITCH Project involves six food hubs across Europe: Rome and the Lazio region; Berlin and the Brandenburg region; Montpellier and the Occitania region; Cagliari and the Sardinia region; Gothenburg and the Vastra Gotaland region; and San Sebastian and the Basque region. 

Over the course of four years, these food hubs and partners will work locally to implement environmental, economic, and social sustainability. The objective is to enhance food systems and related cultural approaches, increase knowledge and awareness, and guarantee accessible, sustainable and healthy foods for all consumers through a strategy of co-creating equitable solutions.

The magazine is a testament to the collaborative and innovative efforts driving the SWITCH Project, showcasing the commitment to reshaping food systems and promoting sustainable dietary practices across Europe.
