Brighter Green is co-hosting The Good Food Hero Summit in Suzhou, China, along with the Good Food Fund, part of the China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation from August 15th – 17th. Every summer, we invite change-makers from across China—the Good Food Heroes—to share their project ideas at the Summit and learn and receive mentorship from global leaders about how to practically promote research and action towards a sustainable food system in China and beyond. This is the third summit.
This year’s theme is “Into the 2020s.” The 2020s is going to be the turning point in human history and it will be an important decade to achieve the UN sustainable development goals, mitigate climate change, slow the biodiversity loss, and meet the rising demand for food. Centered around this theme, the summit invites its speakers and delegates to think ahead for the next ten years how we can bring about/back a plant-forward diet, support better practices in animal welfare, and reduce food waste and plastic pollution.
The highlight of this year’s Summit is the official launch of EAT-Lancet Report in China. This report, published earlier this year, brought together 30 world-leading scientists from across the globe to reach a scientific consensus that defines a healthy and sustainable diet.
