The Alliance for Useful Evidence is delighted to publish the translation of the recent French scoping of evidence intermediaries by Agence nouvelle des solidarités actives and partners: 'British What Works Centres: what lessons for evidence-based policy in France?'

This report, authored by the International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems (IPES-Food) and commissioned by the Global Alliance for the Future of Food shows how food systems affect health through multiple, interconnected pathways, generating severe human and economic costs – and points to levers that can help to address the critical health issues and compounding factors that contribute to poor health, such as climate change, poverty and inequality, and unsanitary conditions.

The SEEd National Sustainable Schools conference is a unique opportunity to participate in ‘learning for sustainability’. The purpose of the day is to support educators to embed sustainability into their campus, curriculum and community.
