October "Green Gastronomy"

Dear University Citizen!

We would like to recommend you to the UP "Green Gastronomy" series of events in the spirit of the vegetarian October!


"You become what you eat!" - Zoltán Szabó, Assistant Professor in the Department of Food and Nutrition at the Faculty of Health Sciences of the UP, will give a presentation on the relationship between nutrition and sustainability: Both the growing scientific knowledge and our own experience make it increasingly clear that the looming ecological crisis requires urgent changes from everyone to survive the global environmental catastrophe. Despite the fact that we hear relatively less about it, our dietary choices have a very significant impact on the state of our environment. The aim of this presentation is to show how the characteristics of a healthy diet can be linked to a more ecologically friendly dietary pattern.

Location and date of the lecture: Faculty of Health Sciences of the UP, 3 Vörösmarty street, room D10-D11; 13th October (Thursday) 4:00 pm.

The lecture is scheduled to last 1 hour.

The event is free of charge, but registration is required.

We would also like to recommend the publication of Írisz Faragó, Zoltán Szabó and András Tálas entitled "A RECOMMENDATION FOR THE GREEN UNIVERSITY PROGRAM FROM AN ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH PERSPECTIVE".
