Brent Loken is the Global Food Lead Scientist for WWF. WWF recently launched the Global Action Platform on Sustainable Consumption and Diets, which convenes key stakeholders working on food systems transformation to maximize collective impact.

Stineke Oenema is a nutritionist, agricultural economist and is the first Executive Secretary of UN Nutrition, which was established in 2020.

Federico Bellone focuses on finding ways to scale systemic, nature-based solutions to climate change. He currently does this through collaboration with the U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP26) High Level Champions and the Climate Ambition Alliance.

Changing the way we eat plays an essential role in achieving the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. It is also one of the biggest ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by food systems.

Loken and Oenema will discuss the inextricable links between sustainable consumption and diet, climate change, biodiversity, and health as well as the importance of breaking down silos for food systems transformation.Food-matters,
