The doors for the next EAT Stockholm Food Forum will open on June 11-12, 2018. Will you be one of the 500 brightest minds from science, politics, business and civil society in attendance?
During the 2018 Forum, progress on solving the interconnected challenges of climate, sustainability and health and take action on transforming our global food system, will be discussed. The forum will present and enable uncommon collaborations, new research, new solutions and new connections.
Poor diets are now the leading global risk factor for disease, whilst the agricultural sector is the single biggest contributor to climate change, deforestation and loss of biodiversity. If current trends in population growth and changes in dietary preferences persist, the world will need to produce 50% more food by 2050, creating unsustainable pressure on natural resources. Addressing these issues is a pressing concern and the potential for positive change is vast.
Creating healthy diets from sustainable food systems will therefore take center stage at the Forum, linking to the work of the EAT-Lancet Commission. In 2018, the Commission will publish its inaugural report in the Lancet, presenting concrete science targets for defining a healthy diet and a sustainable food system – and showing how to take action for a better food future.
