On the 12th–13th of June 2017, EAT will once again gather 500 of the brightest minds from science, politics, business and civil society in Stockholm. They will discuss progress on transforming the food system to solve the interconnected challenges of climate, sustainable development and health.
This year topics will range from innovation and biotechnology to the economics of food systems. CIATs Director General Ruben Echeverría will join the discussion on June 12th on the role of biodiversity for resilient food systems.
As diets around the world are becoming increasingly similar, relying on the same major crops, it is more important than ever to promote crop diversity, as a way to provide nutritious diets, secure better livelihoods, and increase the resilience of the global food system especially in the face of climate change.
