The EAT Forum brought together business leaders, scientists and politicians to discuss and inspire ways to transform our food system so it doesn’t harm our health and is not too much of a burden for the environment.
The EAT forum was an opportunity to hear from a wide array of world-renowned experts about their work related to sustainability, food and nutrition. From having not attended the first day, I came in fresh faced and full of energy. I got the impression from the first few speakers that the dinner the night before was a late one.
“How can we change the food system in order for it to provide us with healthy food, save environment and make a business sense?” “Should we give up on our planet if the solutions don’t make business sense?” and “Does food production need stricter regulation and how does business get on board of the global race for sustainability?”
We have long known that what we eat affects our health, but we are only beginning to grasp how much our food affects the environment, close to home and around the world.
