We will like to invite you to a day where you can learn more about how to eat your way to a sustainable future through talks, tasting and much more.

18.30-19.30 High level policy lab on new food: Food as the new climate action - but how?

Joint event between Stockholm and Madrid

One important way to take action to tackle climate change is to change the way we consume food. Food is rising on both individual and policy agendas as an important entry point, not only to tackle climate change, but more broadly to help us move towards a more sustainable society. This will be a day of dialogue, with discussions and policy labs on how we can eat our way to a sustainable future and how food policy can keep up with fast changing consumer preferences, new innovative food business models and ever increasing calls for ambitious climate action.
