About Stockholm Food Forum 2014

Stockholm Food Forum 2014

In May 2014 the first annual EAT Stockholm Food Forum welcomed participants from all over the world to help set goals and guidelines for the future. In an informal atmosphere, reflected by the warmth and generosity of its host city, the forum offered lectures and panel discussions featuring global leaders in the fields of science, politics and business. But more than that, it also offered a truly unique arena for interdisciplinary dialogue.

A central element of the EAT Initiative is the annual EAT Stockholm Food Forum, where a high-level community of some 500 experts and stakeholders from science, business, policy, and civil society gather for interactive discussions and advancing solutions for healthier and more sustainable food systems. Taking place in Stockholm, Sweden, in early summer every year, the annual EAT Stockholm Food Forum provides an informal platform of mutual trust and inspiration among the delegates for better defining the challenges, outlining solutions and future actions, show-casing concrete results and progress, and exchanging experience and ideas.
