Sustainable development goals
The SDGs wedding cake
A new way of viewing the Sustainable Development Goals and how they are all linked to food
Speaking at the Stockholm EAT Food Forum 13 June 2016, former centre director Johan Rockström and board member Pavan Sukhdev pushed for a new way of viewing the economic, social and ecological aspects of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
They argued that all the sustainable development goals are directly or indirectly connected to sustainable and healthy food. Watch their presentation below.
The illustration describes how economies and societies should be seen as embedded parts of the biosphere. This vision is a move away from the current sectorial approach where social, economic, and ecological development are seen as separate parts.
