Food, Health and Sustainability from a Nordic perspective: The way forward?

A well-attended half-day seminar was arranged on Food Health and Sustainability the 11:th of October, organized by the 2019-year Chalmers Foundation award winners (Stiftelsens pris).

​One of the critical goals in the 2030 agenda for sustainable development is functional food systems. The Eat-Lancet commission recently published a report with global targets on healthy diets from sustainable food systems. The report has received considerable attention worldwide since it represents the first attempts to define intakes of specific foods for optimal health and a sustainable planet.

This report was shortly followed by a report on Nordic food systems by Stockholm resilience center. On the seminar an overview of the reports was presented and an analysis provided of the nutritional and sustainability aspects of the suggested “EAT Lancet Diet” and discuss challenges related to sustainable and nutritional aspects in the Nordic perspective and the way forward.
