The Pledges of the Summit Are To:
We pledge to leverage technology to improve communities and aid in the efforts to engage and educate the public, contribute to sustainability efforts, improve access to nutritious foods, promote research to enhance the public good, and aid in the promotion and uptake of healthy behaviors.
We believe that successful education initiatives require real and meaningful engagement with others through dynamic and sustainable learning and instructional opportunities. We believe in “Meeting people where they are”, leveraging cutting-edge technology, pedagogy, and professional learning to encourage life-long learning and adoption of healthy behaviors.
We believe healthy behavior is an essential determinant of overall health and the prevention of disease. We pledge to directly confront cycles of preventable diet-related disease and expense by encouraging and supporting the delivery of proven and culturally competent approaches to diet, exercise, physical, and mental well-being.
We believe nutrition is integral to people flourishing and to the treatment and management of diseases that threaten us. We know that without access to nourishment that meets the needs of the particular person, taking into account personal requirements, illness, allergies, medications and other life needs, we fail to create health in our society.
We pledge to make sustainability a priority in life. We understand that our actions, behaviors, and choices make an impact on the society, environment, and our economy. We pledge to make intentional choices that will benefit quality of life for all and advocate for choices that benefit the lives of others.
