3.      Fully acknowledges “the Mediterranean Diet” as a pivotal element for sustainable food systems in the countries of the Mediterranean region within the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, by taking into account its dimensions of health and nutrition, environment (including biodiversity), and socio-cultural and economic aspects;

4.      Fully acknowledges that the Mediterranean diet is as a way of living of the Mediterranean people, and a complex web of cultural aspects that depend on each other and lead from nutrition to the economy, through law, history, politics or religion, strongly linked to local territories.

Therefore,
WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN WITH US
IN THIS CALL FOR A COMMON ACTION ON THE REVITALIZATION OF THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET

5.      To act together to reduce the increasing erosion of the Mediterranean diet heritage, with the erosion of the richness and diversity of Mediterranean food cultures;

6.      To act together towards the development of academic and research institution platforms for an interdisciplinary dialogue on how to revitalize the Mediterranean diet, while improving the sustainability of the Mediterranean food systems, by maintaining the close linkages of the Mediterranean diet, as the result, and driver of a food system, to production, distribution and consumption of its main characteristic products;

7.      To act together towards the development of joint interdisciplinary studies and research projects to assess the sustainability of current Mediterranean diet patterns at the country level, and the adherence to an updated Mediterranean diet pyramid, a lifestyle for today, with particular regards to cultural processes and transformations;

8.      To act together for effective, integrated curricula in the schools of Mediterranean countries for nutrition education and food culture, healthy lifestyle and sustainability, with particular orientation to gastronomic and convivial issues;

9.      To act together to reach a consensus on how to assess the adherence and the sustainability of the Mediterranean diet at the country level; and how to reconstruct a sustainable eating culture and lifestyle more suited to the times and for all Mediterranean people. This process should respect and capture the traditional elements of the Mediterranean diet.

The notion of the Mediterranean diet has undergone a progressive evolution over the past 50 years – from that of a healthy diet to a cultural model and sustainable diet, a sustainable lifestyle model.

Despite the Mediterranean diet is well documented and acknowledged as a healthy diet is paradoxically becoming less followed in most Mediterranean countries.  The erosion of the Mediterranean diet heritage is alarming as it has undesirable impacts not only on health, but also on socio-cultural, economic and environmental dimensions in the Mediterranean region. The perception of the Mediterranean diet solely as a “healthy” dietary pattern has until recently overshadowed other important socio-cultural, economic and environmental benefits linked to the Mediterranean diet, by linking food consumption with production and distribution.

The First World Conference on the Mediterranean Diet is made as a continuation of the historical joint effort made by scientists and friends, working together, with open minds and independence, to enhance the Mediterranean diet as a sustainable lifestyle for the today time.  It will foster open interdisciplinary dialogues among all participants on how to revitalize the Mediterranean diet heritage. Contributions from diverse disciplines and different cultures will provide a broader understanding of the multiplex sustainable benefits of the Mediterranean diet, to be shared with all countries in the Mediterranean, by taking into consideration the context of the diversity of the Mediterranean food cultures and food systems.  

It is time now, for the Mediterranean diet international community to reach a consensus on how to assess the adherence and the sustainability of the Mediterranean diet at the country level; and how to reconstruct, at least partly, a sustainable eating culture and life style more suited to the times and for all Mediterranean people. 

This is the consensus challenge that in Milan the World Conference participants have face and achieve in order to truly contribute together towards the revitalization of the Mediterranean diet, as a contemporary life style, a well-being model which includes the principles of sustainability, food security and nutrition for all.
