EAT Stockholm Food Forum 2017

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.

Food systems last century were geared toward production output and profit. This century it needs to be equity and quality. But where can we achieve win-win situations? Which food system triggers could bring about the most transformative change? How can we solve the interconnected challenges of malnutrition, climate change and sustainability through changes to the food value chain?

How can we build an inclusive community working towards making the global food system healthy, and sustainable? Can we build a web of accountability to ensure commitments turn into action? If there are no silver bullets – how can we create achievable global commitments if each industry and sector has different targets and indicators?
