Dear dietitians and nutritionists colleagues,
The 17th International Congress of Dietetics will take place in the city of Granada (Spain) on 7, 8, 9, 10 September 2016. We expect a participation of more than 3000 dietitians and nutritionists. This will be a wonderful and multicultural encounter not only from a humanistic point of view but also because it will make possible to exchange professional experiences among dietitians from all around the world.
The congress in Spain will cover new challenges for dietitians and would like to make them aware that with their day-to-day work they can immensely contribute to bequeath a better world and a better planet to the future generations. A sustainable diet is the key to take care of our planet: while being respectful with the environment, it also enables us to support local farmers, fishermen, cattlemen and food producers from our most nearby geographical surroundings.
Nowadays, in many countries round the world, lots of families have to face the important economic recession prioritizing the price in their food baskets without taking in account their health or the environment protection.
We, dietitians, have a very crucial role in advising and educating people towards a healthy and economic nutrition that should also be sustainable.
It īs time to support each other!
For this reason, The Spanish Foundation of Dietitians-Nutritionists in collaboration with the General Council of Dietitians-Nutritionist of Spain have the pleasure to invite you to the next International Congress of Dietetic in Spain so we can all approach together the main issue of our congress:
Going to sustainable eating!
To illustrate the congress we have chosen the literary characters of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza from "El Quixote" by Miguel de Cervantes, one of the most important works of literature in the history of the Spanish Culture.
Last but not least I would like to suggest you to take part of a first sustainable experience: TWIN A SPANISH DIETITIAN! If you twin a dietitian living in Spain, he / she will get in contact with you so you can be twins during the next years. This way he will support you with any questions you may have, will help you to organize your visit to Granada and will be your host during the days the Congress will take place in September 2016.
