Food, Farming and Countryside Commission

EAT-Lancet Commission London launch

20th February 2019

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 a healthy diet from a sustainable food system – as published in the EAT-Lancet ‘Food in the Anthropocene’ report.

This panel of experts unpack what the EAT-Lancet framework might look like in a UK context.

Dr Sandro Demaio, CEO of EAT, and Professor Tim Lang, City University & EAT-Lancet Commissioner, present the findings of the Commission, and Dr Marco Springmann, James Martin Fellow, Oxford Martin School, present the new UK data.

The panel debate is moderated by Sue Pritchard, Director of the FFC Commission.

Professor Corinna Hawkes, Director, City University Centre for Food Policy and EAT-Lancet Commissioner provides the closing remarks.
