On 26-27 May 2014, EAT – Stockholm Food Forum will welcome participants from all over the world to set goals and guidelines for the future of food. This first annual forum will offer lectures and panel discussions featuring global leaders in the fields of science, politics and business; it’s a unique arena for interdisciplinary dialogue linking food, health and sustainability.
There are already several international forums on nutrition, health and sustainability but EAT will be the first forum that incorporates all three fields. It’s modelled on the World Economic Forum in Davos, and has strong similarities with Stockholm’s World Water Week – which has been an annual focal point for the globe’s water issues since 1991.
The ambition is to create an arena for science, politics and business to share insight and ideas. The organisers hope to establish a common goal on how to sustainably feed a healthy world population, and advance integrated solutions for food, health and sustainability.
EAT is initiated and owned by the Stordalen Foundation with the Stockholm Resilience Centre as its main academic partner. The Forum’s impressive advisory board reflects the cross disciplinary, multinational approach of EAT, and its members are some of the world’s most renowned experts in their respective field.
According to the Forum, EAT will:
- Contribute to innovation and add value to business and industry;
- Set the political agenda;
- Develop strategies to increase the populations knowledge and awareness;
- and Publish academic and consumer guidelines.
WWF is working with EAT and will take active part in the event, safeguarding the natural world and building a one planet future.
