This Independent Dialogue seeks to explore Dutch lessons in employing urban systems approaches to combat childhood obesity. Using these lessons as a starting point, we aim to explore how the Dutch lessons can be used in other contexts. Further, we invite other local governments and communities worldwide to share their insights on such urban systems approaches. In doing so, this dialogue aims to compile successful lessons in transforming urban food systems to create a healthier youth. Hence, it aligns with Action Track 1: ‘ensure access to safe and nutritious food for all’. The insights of this dialogue will inform the Global dialogue: ‘Empowering cities and local governments to improve food systems globally’ which will take place on June 28th, 2021.
The Dialogue will be commenced by an initial discussion between Gerda Verburg (Scaling Up Nutrition Movement) and a representative from the Amsterdam Municipality. Further, lessons from the analysis of Dutch systems approaches will be shared to initiate discussions in breakout rooms. Each breakout room will address a specific theme, introduced with reflections of a city network. Based on the exchanges and discussions from the breakout rooms, the Dialogue will conclude by weaving gained insights.
