June 11-12, 2018:
The Leading Arena for Global Food System Transformation
Published March 5, 2018
Will you be one of the 500 brightest minds from science, politics, business and civil society taking part in the EAT Stockholm Food Forum?
There is no silver bullet solution, nor a single path to tackling the complex health and environmental challenges presented by our global food system. Difficult trade-offs will need to be made and inconvenient truths faced.
At the 2018 EAT Stockholm Food Forum we will explore a range of solutions available for achieving healthy and sustainable diets for a growing global population. We will confront some of the hard questions head on, such as how to feed the world with zero land expansion and ocean depletion, or the benefits of processed foods and clean meat.
In short, we will be stepping out of the comfort zone.
Informed by research analysed in the upcoming EAT-Lancet Commission on Healthy Diets from Sustainable Food Systems, the fifth anniversary of the Forum will encourage dialogue, engage with the audience through panel discussions, interactive plenaries, interviews and workshops.
This year, the Forum will be held on June 11-12, 2018 at Annexet and Quality Hotel Globe.
