Integrating sustainability in athletes’ dietary choices (Sustdiet)

One of the targets of the European Green Deal’s “Farm to Fork Strategy” (F2F) is to promote sustainable food consumption and facilitate the shift to healthy, sustainable diets. Indeed, a healthier and more sustainable EU food system is a cornerstone of the Green Deal in order to achieve a complete overhaul of the EU's food system towards achieving climate neutrality by 2050. This project aims at:

  • Enhancing the knowledge of professional and non-professional athletes and other sports professionals (coaches, trainers, fitness instructors etc.) on sustainable food choices and their effect on the athletes’ health and sports performance and on the environment, so that they not only change their dietary habits, but become role models and agents of change
  • Increasing awareness among athletes, sports professionals and organizations on athletes’ dietary choices carbon footprint
  • Enhancing access to dietary guidelines and flexible educational tools for professional and non-professional athletes that are aligned with sustainability principles
  • Enhancing the knowledge and skills of sports nutrition professionals on the impact diets have on the environment and how they can assist athletes to shift to more sustainable diets.
