This year’s topics ranged from innovation and biotechnology to the economics of food systems. Exciting speakers included Caleb Harper from MIT Media Lab, who shared 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 looked at sustainable consumption and production in the context of food waste.
On the 12th–13th of June 2017, EAT gathered 500 of the brightest minds from science, politics, business and civil society at the Clarion Hotel Sign, Stockholm. They discussed progress on transforming the food system to solve the interconnected challenges of climate, sustainable development and health.

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? We face numerous global challenges and exponential pressure around food that require action from a range of actors to successfully feed a growing world population. We live in a world where one in three suffer from some form of malnutrition. Some of our most pressing global challenges include issues around malnutrition where currently about 2 billion individuals are overweight or obese, and these statistics can potentially rise to about 3.3. billion by 2030. Simultaneously 2 billion of the world population also suffer from micronutrient deficiencies. While we produce enough food to feed everyone -- 795 million people (one in nine) go to be hungry every day.

Breaking patterns is not easy. In the 21st century, the speed of technological innovation is unprecedented. This phenomenon has the potential to help tackle some of humanity’s greatest challenges, fundamentally reshaping the future. New technologies and innovators are increasingly promising solutions that could help deliver sustainable growth. However, a lot of great ideas are not scaleable, or never make it to the mainstream...
