Launch of the Planet-Friendly Eating & Living Platform
The ECCT has just launched its Planet-Friendly Eating & Living Platform to show that it is possible to eat and live well without harming the planet. The first event to be held under the platform will be a lunch on 3 June 2019 on the subject: "Why the World Needs a New Diet - How plant-based food is good for the planet and your health". The event will feature a tasty, planet-friendly 4-course menu + petit fours prepared and introduced by the Grand Hyatt's Michelin-starred chefs and presentations by medical professionals on the health and environmental benefits of a whole-foods, plant-based diet.

The mission of the PEL Platform is to help corporations and individuals make informed choices regarding their health and also the health of the planet by sharing information and raising awareness about nutrition, healthy lifestyles and choices and ways to mitigate the impact of human agricultural and food-related activities on the environment. The PEL Platform will actively promote planet-friendly diets, exercise and living habits that maintain and enhance the health of people and safeguard the environment by minimising the impact of humans and restoring ecological balance. Under the platform activities will be arranged that highlight innovative research, environmental, social and business trends and showcase the best solutions and practices for:
• Producing and distributing nutritious food that has the lowest possible impact on the environment;
• Enhancing physical and mental health and well-being by promoting healthy lifestyle choices;
• Promoting sustainable, planet-friendly consumption habits
• The PEL Platform welcomes contributions and case sharing from corporations, government, social enterprises, foundations and other non-profit organisations. All activities are designed to attract the widest possible participation by all stakeholders and the general public.
