JUNE 11-12, 2018: Will you be one of the 500 brightest minds from science, politics, business and civil society taking part in the EAT Stockholm Food Forum?
There is no silver bullet solution, nor a single path to tackling the complex health and environmental challenges presented by our global food systems. Difficult trade-offs will need to be made and inconvenient truths faced.
At the 2018 EAT Stockholm Food Forum we will explore a range of solutions available for achieving healthy and sustainable diets for a growing global population. We will confront some of the hard questions head on, such as how to feed the world with zero land expansion and ocean depletion, or the benefits of processed foods and clean meat.
In short, we will be stepping out of the comfort zone.
Informed by the progressive report from the EAT-Lancet Commission on Healthy Diets from Sustainable Food Systems, the fifth anniversary of the Forum will encourage dialogue, engage with the audience through panel discussions, interactive plenaries, interviews and workshops.
This year, the Forum will be held on June 11-12, 2018 at Annexet and Quality Hotel Globe in Stockholm.
Further details on the program will follow soon. Confirmed speakers are regularly updated.
The EAT Stockholm Food Forum is an invitation-only event for leaders and experts in science, politics, business and civil society from across the world. Even though the Forum is invitation-only, EAT strives to have diversity among its delegates.
If you have not received an invitation yet, but think you should, you can request an invitation here.
The Forum will be live streamed at eatforum.org and on EAT’s Facebook page.
Over the past four years, we have convened a diverse range of dynamic speakers in Stockholm to share solutions and motivate commitment, including Bill Clinton (Former President, United States), Jamie Oliver (Celebrity Chef and Food Revolutionary), H.E. Mrs. Ameenah Gurib-Fakim (President, the Republic of Mauritius), Paul Polman (CEO, Unilever), Professor Dariush Mozaffarian (Dean, Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy), Yolanda Kakabadse (President, WWF International), Sir Bob Geldof (Musician, Activist, Founder Band Aid & Live Aid), Sir Robert Watson (Chair, Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services), Dr. Uma Valeti (CEO, Memphis Meats) and Dr. Kanayo Nwanze (Former President of International Fund for Agricultural Development, IFAD).
