Why EAT is important

Interview with Jonas Gahr Støhre, Leader of the Norwegian Labour Party and member of the EAT Advisory Board.

In the political systems sustainability, food and health issues are treated separately, “in silos” Gahr Støhre explains.

“As a politician I have seen how we failed to change because we do it independently and in silos. We have to break that logic,” Gahr Støre said. But Gahr Støre is optimistic and explained why EAT is playing an important role in creating awareness, research and results and put pressure on the decision makers. “New knowledge will create new agendas,” he said.
