Organised by the EAT Foundation, EAT Stockholm Food Forum returns for it’s third year next week, bringing together speakers from around the world, including Jamie Oliver.
On June 13th- 14th, the forum will bring together leaders from the fields of science, business, politics and civil society in order to inspire action towards reforming our global food system.
“Currently 41 million children under the age of five are overweight, while another 159 million are too undernourished to grow properly. We’re in the middle of a global health crisis and we urgently need a food revolution so we can reverse the tide. I believe that every person on the planet should be able to access, understand and consume nutritious, delicious food, every day. The good news is, the Food Revolution is well underway and we have an army of people fighting for meaningful, lasting change. I’m really excited about going to EAT this year, and to be working alongside incredible people from the political, scientific and business community who are involved in this terrific initiative – together, we can fix the broken food system.” – Jamie
What we eat not only determines our health but also determines the health of our planet. This year, the forum will cover consumption and production patterns, technology and innovation, international agreements and cities.
Alongside Jamie, speakers at the forum include:
- Tuilaepa Aiono Sailele Malielegaoi, The Prime Minister of Samoa
- Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland & Member of The Elders
- Vytenis Andriukaitis, European Commissioner of Health & Food Safety
- Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever
