“Reports like this one are empowering. They give us tools, show us ways, contributes by letting us see where our opportunities might be, telling us that we still have a chance to make it,” says environmental activist Penelope Lea (14) at the EAT-Lancet launch in Oslo, January 17 2019. Earlier this year she received the National Volunteer Prize for her involvement in the environmental movement.
EAT gathered 37 of the planet’s foremost experts who, for the first time ever, propose scientific targets for what constitutes both a healthy diet and a sustainable food system. The result was the EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health, which was first launched in Oslo on January 17.
