Introduction

The UN Food Systems Summit will be convened by UN Secretary-General António Guterres in September 2021. The purpose is to shape global commitments and to raise global awareness of food systems, that they might be transformed in order to reduce diet-related diseases, resolve hunger, and restore planetary health. The Secretary-General is calling all citizens to collective action, so as to “radically change the way we produce, process, transport, market and consume food”.
The conversations and actions are happening now and chefs should be at the forefront. We believe that by chefs working together, we can help deliver the UN Sustainable Development Goals and provide a better food system for all.

As such, the Chefs' Manifesto Network is taking a leading role to further focus the SDG roadmap for chefs, asking chefs to come together with one collective voice, to drive forward action throughout 2021 and beyond.

As a first step, we have compiled this survey is to learn what you perceive to be the top practical actions that will enact change in the Decade of Action.

From the results of this survey, the Chefs' Manifesto will facilitate a Chefs’ Pledge - asking chefs to commit to this - thereby creating collective momentum to rally greater attention and engagement of food systems champions as agents of change, at key global events. Chefs together, can change the world.

The topics for each question are taken from the Chefs' Manifesto Action Plan that synthesises the United Nations Global Goals into 8 THEMATIC AREAS.

From these 8 areas, chefs have created simple ACTIONS to provide a practical guide that chefs can use to deliver change through their kitchens, classrooms and communities.
The Chefs' Pledge is facilitated by the Chefs' Manifesto, in support of the United Nations Food Systems Summit, in partnership with the World Association of Chefs Societies, Chefs 4 The Planet, Social Gastronomy, The Chef Ann Foundation, Good Food Fund China, Le Cordon Bleu.
