RSA Food, Farming & Countryside Commission & City University Centre for Food Policy Food Thinkers Seminars present the EAT-Lancet Commission London Launch

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.

These targets have polarised opinions across the food, farming and public health sectors. One of the most widely touted challenges to the report is the applicability of the global set of recommendations at a local level – how might different countries respond?

To unpack what the EAT-Lancet framework might look like in a UK context, the Food, Farming & Countryside Commission and City University’s Food Thinkers Seminars are convening a panel of experts from food policy, farming, public health and government backgrounds as well as presenting new UK-specific modelling data.


Dr Sandro Demaio, CEO of EAT, and Professor Tim Lang, City University & EAT-Lancet Commissioner, will present the findings of the Commission, and Dr Marco Springmann, James Martin Fellow, Oxford Martin School, will present the new UK data. A panel debate will follow, moderated by Sue Pritchard, Director of the FFC Commission. Professor Corinna Hawkes, Director, City University Centre for Food Policy and EAT-Lancet Commissioner will provide closing remarks.
