EAT Foundation


Elin Bergstrøm is a Policy Officer at EAT, a global non-profit startup based in Oslo, Norway, dedicated to transforming our global food system to be able to feed a growing population healthy diets from sustainable production. Elin has been actively involved in EAT’s engagements in the Asia-Pacific, in particular the inaugural EAT Asia-Pacific Food Forum that was held in Jakarta in 2017 and co-hosted by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia. Elin is also coordinating EAT’s involvement in the EU Horizon 2020 project called CO-CREATE. The project uses a societal systems approach to understand how factors associated with obesity interact at various levels and will work directly with adolescents to create, inform and disseminate policies to tackle obesity among their peers. EAT will work to connect youth with other stakeholders to action commitments and policies to enable healthy nutrition and physical activity habits among adolescents. Elin has a MSc. in Environmental Studies and Sustainability Science from Lund University, Sweden.
