Early in 2015 the International Confederation of Dietetic Associations (ICDA) ratified support for three United Nations (UN) campaigns. In an effort to support dietetic associations and their members to become engaged in advancing the messages from these three UN Campaigns, ICDA is coordinating the development of key messages and resources. The overall intent of these campaigns is to support food sustainability. We encourage you to get involved. Use the presentations we have prepared in your communities and workplaces and post tweets using the tweet sheets provided.
