The Future Food Institute is an Italian-based non-profit with global horizons that aims to build a more equitable world by enlightening a world-class breed of innovators, boosting entrepreneurial potential and improving agri-food expertise and tradition.

 

The 15th anniversary of NNEdPro is an opportunity for the Future Food Institute to be inspired and reflect.

To be inspired by the wholesome growth of this spin-off, which embodies the very core of applied, intersectional, interdisciplinary, participatory research.
 
To reflect on the many different opportunities for future collaboration: from projects to conferences and events to give visibility to the nexus between sustainable food systems and public health. What does a sustainable diet look like? We are thrilled to be exploring this question with NNEdPro by our side as a guiding light!

I have been a member of NNEdPro for approaching 5 years. NNEdPro has provided me with several opportunities to improve our collective understanding of nutrition and make progress towards tackling malnutrition in all its forms.

 

I have gained from the global network of inspiring and influential colleagues that spans several sectors and disciplines.

 

My involvement with NNEdPro has been rewarding and worthwhile, and on a personal note, has been instrumental in my progress as a clinician academic early in my career. I am excited to see what NNEdPro is able to achieve in the years ahead through continued collaboration and action toward better nutrition.

Dear Shumone,

Thank you for your recent communication, and I am pleased to note your 9th International Summit on Nutrition and Health is taking place – I even remember your first summit!

 

I am also pleased to acknowledge 2023 being your 15th Anniversary as an organisation. May I take this opportunity to send my congratulations on reaching this significant milestone. The past 15 years have seen many challenges for us all, and your determination to persevere throughout is to be much admired.

 

My best wishes for another successful summit.

I am writing this letter in support of NNEdPro Global Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health as a key representative of one of NNEdPro’s strategic collaborative partners.

 

NNEdPro is a not-for-profit global and interdisciplinary think-tank and an independent research organisation which brings together over 700 voluntary contributors from among leading professionals in the field of nutrition and health spanning over 50 countries worldwide. We believe that everyone has the right to good nutrition. In addition to a world-class record across research and education impacts, including several hundred peer-reviewed publications, we also provide direct support to vulnerable families and communities on the ground through our multi-award-winning Mobile Teaching Kitchen International Initiative, whilst our educational programmes train frontline healthcare professionals as well as policymakers around the globe. 

 

NNEdPro’s goal is to improve nutrition-related health outcomes in line with the UNs’ Sustainable Development Goals and the Decade of Action on Nutrition. To accomplish this, they aim to provide the best of education, research, evaluation, and advocacy, particularly in nutrition-related aspects of health and food systems. With the support of those who share their values and goals, they aim to strengthen and promote international initiatives and exchange knowledge implementation of medical nutrition in practical settings. 

 

2023 marks nine continuous years of holding the NNEdPro annual International Summit on Nutrition and Health. NNEdPro intends to spend the next two years looking back at the last nine summits to see what has been achieved in terms of global consensus and draw out both the needs and solutions for the final two years of the UNs Decade of Action on Nutrition (which concludes in 2025).  

 

For these reasons, I strongly support NNEdPro and their current and future ventures.

 

If you have any further questions about their qualifications, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Congratulations NNEdPro on an amazing 15 years of leadership in advancing nutrition education across the globe. Monash Nutrition (also known as The Department of Nutrition, Dietetics and Food at Monash University) has worked closely with NNEdPro over the last 5 years, having formed a strategic collaborative partnership with NNEdPro in 2018.

 

We are proud to have been able to collaborate on providing education support to nutrition educators, primarily through providing a pathway to IANE membership and through active participation in the NNEdPro Australia and New Zealand Regional Network.

 

We look forward to continuing to work together to strongly advocate for increased awareness of the importance of nutrition strategies as part of routine medical care and healthcare.

The work that NNEdPro does in bringing people together across disciplines and across borders is needed now more than ever.

 

In particular the initiatives to tackle malnutrition in developing countries, but also the work to highlight the burden of obesity-related diseases in the developed world, and the development of coordinated strategies to tackle these through nutrition.

 

The key to all these is education, and I am delighted that this is also at the heart of NNEdPro; education delivered directly to vulnerable communities but also nutrition education of our clinical professionals, an area that has been consistently neglected and uncoordinated.

 

I am proud and honoured to be part of this community and am confident that NNEdPro will continue to be bringing innovative evidence-based solutions.

This letter is a formal endorsement of NNEdPro Global Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health.

 

In my role as a research associate in socio-economy and rural development at the Bern University of Applied Sciences (BFH) School of Agricultural, Forest and Food Sciences (HAFL), I have been a contributor and supporter of NNEdPro’s work for the past 3 years. I became Co-Lead of its Switzerland and Non-Mediterranean Network in 2022.

 

The international network that NNEdPro created 15 years ago, and continues to maintain, is compatible and complementary with the work we do at BFH-HAFL, particularly at the HAFL Hugo P. Cecchini Institute for International Cooperation and Development.

 

International food, nutrition, and health in developing and transition countries is one of the Institute’s core focal points. Sustainability and the importance of farm to fork as a driving force for food systems transformations are themes mutually shared.

 

As an expert in commodity value chains, I am thankful for the international connections and relationships NNedPro has created and am excited about the potential for future collaborations.

 

Providing a space for networking, knowledge management and knowledge transfer has benefited my work, and also the work of my students. I highly recommend NNEdPro Global Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health and their efforts to create a global network of professionals and institutions by fostering international collaboration.
