EAT Stockholm Food Forum 2019
The brightest minds of the food system transformation movement will gather in Sweden for the sixth annual EAT Stockholm Food Forum.
Wednesday June 12 – Thursday June 13, 2019
EAT Stockholm Food Forum is a carefully curated gathering of global thought leaders from science, politics, business and civil society. EAT’s flagship event seeks to drive progress and coordinate action across sectors and disciplines to tackle the intertwined challenges of the global food system.
The forum is a breeding ground for uncommon collaborations, new research, new solutions and new connections.
Next year’s topics of discussion build on the findings of the EAT-Lancet report on healthy diets from sustainable food systems, to be launched in January 2019.
The report outlines five urgent and radical transformations needed by 2050:
- Shift the world to healthy, tasty, and sustainable diets
- Realign food system priorities for people and planet
- Produce more of the right food, from less
- Safeguard our land and oceans
- Radically reduce food losses and waste
Over the past five years, EAT has convened a diverse range of dynamic speakers to share solutions and motivate commitment, including Mr. Jamie Oliver (Celebrity Chef), Dr. Kristalina Georgieva (CEO, World Bank), Dr. Caleb Harper (Principal Investigator & Director, Open Ag Initiative), HRH Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, Mr. Gilbert Houngbo (President, IFAD), Mr. Paul Polman (CEO, Unilever), Dame Ellen MacArthur (Founder and Chair, Ellen MacArthur Foundation), Sir Bob Geldof (Musician, Activist, Founder Band Aid & Live Aid), Mr. Bill Clinton (Former President, United States) Dr. Uma Valeti (CEO, Memphis Meats) and Ms. Christiana Figueres (Lead, Mission 2020).
EAT’s vision is a fair and sustainable global food system for healthy people, animals and planet – leaving no one behind.
