Brighter Green is proud to be a co-host of The Good Food Hero Summit along with the Good Food Fund, part of the China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation.
Every summer, we invite change-makers from across China—the Good Food Heroes—to share their project ideas at the Summit and receive mentorship from global leaders to practically promote research and action towards a sustainable food system in China and beyond.
The theme of the Good Food Hero Summit 2018 is “Menus for the Future”—how public institutions can establish and implement a mindful food policy to lead the food system towards a healthy and sustainable future. Good Food Fund and Brighter Green are working to bring together the best resources from different continents to elaborate on sustainable food concepts as well as the establishment and implementation of effective food policies, together with visionary school managers, students, and other change-makers in public food services. The summit will comprise of speakers from world-level academic and professional backgrounds, workshops with these experts to discuss and elaborate on project ideas, and forums for these ideas to be shared. A list of the speakers and their bios can be found here.
This is the Second Annual Good Food Hero Summit, taking place August 5th—7th in Chengdu, China. Information about the first Summit can be found here.
