Sustainability is a right for all and the recognition of this requires a shift to a not more segmented approach to well-being sustainability. It is fundamental an universal approach, based on three pillars: an integrated communication strategy "Empowering Sustainability"; a new reference global system; the valorization of the "Excellence systems" of the territories. Starting from these considerations, this article looks at the role that the Food Systems of the Planet can play in determining the recognition of the right to an Overall Food System as a lever for the construction and maintenance over time and space of the well-being of our societies.
Keywords: Sustainability empowerment, right to sustainability, food system, right to food, integrated communication, well-being sustainability.
