Can we feed a future population of 10 billion people a healthy diet within planetary boundaries?

To answer this question, EAT gathered 37 of the planet’s foremost experts who, for the first time ever, propose scientific targets for what constitutes a healthy diet from a sustainable food system. This groundbreaking report was launched in Oslo, Norway on January 17, 2019. Since then this report has been released in over 25 countries.
