2024 symposium

Sustainable and nourishing diets: how to meet both targets


Save the date! May 3, 2024 Brussels

Featured speakers

Flaminia Ortenzi, Research Associate, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), Geneva, Switzerland: "Achieving micronutrient adequacy within planetary boundaries globally: one of the greatest challenges of our time"


Thomas Ponsioen, independent environmental consultant, FootPrinting, The Netherlands: “How to compare the environmental impact of apples, oranges and other food… and why we want to do this” 

The annual symposium of the Belgian Nutrition Society covered a wide range of settings and domains in which the interplay between nutrition and physical activity is particularly relevant.

From the more basic molecular interaction induced by nutrition and muscle contraction to improve insulin sensitivity and glucose intolerance to the improvement of sports performance by some nutritional supplements and to the protein need and recommendations in clinical settings.
