Given to COVID-19/Corona Virus, we have been in close consultation with public health experts and it has become clear that the EAT Stockholm Food Forum 2020 as planned – a convening of 700 people from over 80 countries across the globe – is not wise this year. We are cancelling the physical convening and redirecting our efforts into our shared work, conversations and commitments forward while maximizing health and well-being.
Bringing leaders from across the food system together around the best science, innovative solutions and vital conversations is the cornerstone of our work. This virus has highlighted the critical nature of human and planetary health, equity and a united course forward. With food systems at the core of all those issues, our shared work is more important now than ever.
This was not an easy decision but is an important one to ensure our work toward food systems transformation remains values-aligned and adaptive.
Thank you for your support of EAT, the EAT Stockholm Food Forum, and for your commitment to our shared work.
If you have any questions or enquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will post updates here shortly. Below this line is information about the previously scheduled event.
Committing to the Decade of Transformation
Food systems are our number one opportunity for improving climate, human health, biodiversity and equity.
With 2030 identified as both a point of no return in climate change, and the deadline to meet all 17 Sustainable Development Goals, the next ten years will determine our future. It has never been more urgent to come together to get it right.
Join the brightest minds of the food system transformation in Sweden for the seventh annual EAT Stockholm Food Forum where together we will commit to the decade of transformation.
EAT Stockholm Food Forum is a carefully curated event, open by invitation to 700 participants. Curated this year to maximize opportunities for learning, collaborating and coordinating on-site, the Forum will zoom in on the critical themes and trends, making the complexity of change needed accessible. The experience of this year’s Forum will offer a chance to work with the top global thought leaders from science, politics, business, civil society and beyond.
EAT’s flagship event spotlights solutions, expands the conversation on tough topics, and hosts a unique intersection of leaders to drive progress and action across sectors and disciplines.
The 2020 event will build on the 2019 “Super Year in Science” including the publication of the EAT-Lancet and other critical science reports, elevate examples of business and policy taking bold steps into action, and convene dialog and coordination to inform our shared path to 2030.
