Stockholm: food at centre stage


On the 9th to 12th of June, food will take centre stage as the brightest minds from science, civil society, politics and the private sector gather in Stockholm for the EAT Stockholm Food Forum 2018. With theme “Stepping Out of the Comfort Zone”, EAT will ask tough questions to explore solutions for achieving healthy and sustainable diets for all within planetary boundaries. 

This year Stockholm will also welcome 16 chefs from 13 countries who will represent the Chefs’ Network for the Global Goals - a global network of 130+ chefs who are working together to tackle the food system issues that matter most to them. Over the course of four action-packed days, the chefs will attend the Stockholm Food Forum as well as cook for the public and chat sustainability at a range of events.  Some of the highlights include:

On Sunday 10th of June, the 16 chefs will take part in a cook off at Smaka på Stockholm (Taste of Stockholm), one of the largest food festivals in Europe, alongside leading thinkers in the SDG2 space Gerda Verburg, Gunhild Stordalen and Gilbert Huongbo. At Kungsträdgården, chefs will share their love for food and work on sustainability with some of Stockholm’s best restaurants, food trucks, local producers and foodies. Come down if you are in area or follow on social.


On Monday 11th, the 16 chefs will help launch a ground-breaking Action Plan that will outline practical actions and examples of how chefs can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Designed as a practical guide, the Action Plan details simple actions chefs can take in their kitchens and communities to deliver a better food system for all.  At a dinner hosted by EAT, the attending chefs will be a part of the official launch the Action Plan and speak about chefs’ ability to curate a wider conversation around food system reform.
