The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future investigates the intersection of food systems and public health.
As the world's population and consumer demand continue to grow, there is urgent need to improve human health, prevent disease, and meet basic needs for food, water and shelter equitably for all people.
Our goal is to promote research and to develop and communicate information about the complex interrelationships among diet, food production, environment and human health. We also want to advance an ecological perspective in reducing threats to the health of the public, and to promote policies that protect health, the global environment and the ability to sustain life for future generations.
Since 1996 the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF) has been addressing some of the most pressing issues in the food system. As an interdisciplinary academic center within the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the CLF is dedicated to building a healthier, more equitable, and resilient food system. The CLF is a leader in food system and public health research, education, policy, and advocacy and is a trusted scientific resource for advocates, policy makers, educators, and communities.
