On the 12th–13th of June 2017, EAT will once again gather 500 of the brightest minds from science, politics, business and civil society at the Clarion Hotel Sign, Stockholm. They will discuss progress on transforming the food system to solve the interconnected challenges of climate, sustainable development and health.
This year topics will range from innovation and biotechnology to the economics of food systems. Exciting speakers include Caleb Harper from MIT Media Lab, who will share the innovative ways that biotech is revolutionizing the urban food system, and policy advocate Yolanda Kakabadse, WWFs International President and former Ecuadorian Minister of Environment, who will look at sustainable consumption and production in the context of food waste.
This is an invitation-only event. Personal invitations will be sent from March 2017. If you wish to request an invitation please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
