Global Kick-off of the EAT-Lancet 2.0 Commission: Building consensus and setting clear food system targets for people and planet

About: In 2019, the EAT-Lancet Commission, Food, Planet, Health, signaled the win-win impacts of healthy diets on human and planetary health. Among its major findings, feeding 10 billion people healthy diets within environmental limits is not only possible, but would avert more than 11 million premature adult deaths per year.

EAT is launching EAT-Lancet 2.0 for publication in 2024 and will kick off this collaborative scientific update with an introduction to the work of the newest Commission at Stockholm+50. Focused on building scientific consensus among a diversity of food system actors—from production to consumption—this event will introduce the goals of the Commission and celebrate the multiple local food system pathways that can enable us to achieve the global goals. The program includes an introduction by EAT and The Lancet, a panel discussion with the co-chairs of the Commission, a moderated multi-stakeholder dialogue, and concluding remarks on how the international community can support nature positive and healthy outcomes.

Join this landmark event to meet the international Commission addressing food system equity and to learn more from civil society, government, and private sector actors rallying to accelerate action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals through sustainable food system transformation.
