The Conference is organized by the Research Centre for Spatial and Organizational Dynamics (Cieo) in partnership with the Chaire Unesco "Alimentations du Monde" as a cooperative action between the University of Algarve and the Institute Nationale de Recherche Agronomique, Montpellier.
Algarve is the ideal site for stablishing a long term responsibility in diffusing Mediterranean Diet. In 2013, coordinated by the Tavira Municipality, Portugal together with other seven countries were able to push the Mediterranean Diet to be awarded the prestigious UNESCO distinction of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
This conference aims to increase the awareness and understanding of the impact of the Mediterranean dietary way of life, as well as to disseminate the research work that is taking place on this subject.
