In her 2016 TEDMED Talk, Gunhild Stordalen explores the powerful—yet often invisible—connections between food, health and climate. Together with her husband Petter, Gunhild established The Stordalen Foundation in 2011 to support projects, initiatives and organizations that work for a healthy and sustainable future. She also founded EAT in 2013, which has grown from a humble platform into a global movement with support from the Stockholm Resilience Center and Wellcome Trust.
