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 both a healthy diet and a sustainable food system.

We are thrilled to invite you to the global launch of the report of the EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health. 

Register HERE by February 1 to secure your seat at the event. Please note that you will require a special events ticket to access the event, unless you have a UN ground pass.

Dr. Gunhild A. Stordalen, EAT’s Founder and Executive Chair, will share her vision on a global dugnad for a better food future.

You will be guided through the report by the world-renowned scientist and co-chair of the Commission – Professor Walter Willett (Harvard University). Following the presentation, H.E. Nikolai Astrup (Minister of International Development of Norway), Mr. Satya Tripathi (UN Environment) and Dr. Juan Rivera Dommarco (National Institute of Public Health, Mexico) will provide reflections on the findings.
