Chef Action on Biodiversity

2020 for 2020

Unlike most of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which culminate in 2030, the targeted end for SDG Target 2.5 is 2020. There is a very short, two-year window to drive action on the target.

To mobilize action and build awareness of this urgent goal, the Food Forever Initiative and the Chefs’ Manifesto are joining forces to launch the 2020 for 2020, a global campaign that calls on chefs to advocate for the amazing wealth of diversity within our food system and to put it to use in their kitchens and beyond. 

The Campaign

Our aim is to inspire 2020+ chefs from across the world to champion biodiversity by 2020 – the target year for achieving UN SDG 2.5. Chef actions will be showcased here to demonstrate how chefs can inspire better ways of cooking and eating and advocate for biodiversity conservation, through their kitchens, restaurants and recipes.

Get Involved

Chefs can sign up to be a part of the 2020 for 2020 campaign through our survey here.

By signing up, you commit to protecting what remains of the vast, colorful spectrum of diversity within our food system and celebrating it on your menus and in your restaurants. You can help plant the seed for a more diverse, sustainable and delicious future. Actions include adding a diverse ingredient to your menu, highlighting a diverse ingredient of the month or advocating for the importance of biodiversity with consumers and the general public.
