Summary

The new EAT-Lancet Commission will revise global science-based targets for healthy diets and sustainable food production, ultimately to chart a course to a resilient food future for all.

Description

"We require nothing less than a total re-construction of human civilisation within a single generation, and all of this begins with the very foundation of that civilisation, food." Richard Horton, editor in chief, The Lancet.

The event provides details on the diverse group of 25 world-leading researchers who evaluate the pathways to a healthy, sustainable and equitable future; set out the metrics needed to deliver change; and consult widely on the diversity of diets and productions processes needed to recast the food system to one fit for purpose.
