For the fifth consecutive year, Gastromotiva, founded by chef, social entrepreneur and Young Global Leader David Hertz, participates in the 2019 World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. In its 49th edition, the Forum presents an agenda based on the theme “Globalization 4.0: Shaping a Global Architecture in the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution”; and unites more than 3000 leaders of governments, business, civil society, academia, media and other sectors.
“We’ve made significant progress since we announced the Social Gastronomy Movement (SGM) in Davos one year ago, in partnership with Cargill. Now we return to present the exciting next phase of this global movement that is growing amongst a global community, all connected by the transformative power of food. Building sustainable and inclusive societies in a plurilateral world has to begin with accessible food, education and opportunities being offered with dignity for all human-kind, no exceptions. As the backbone organization for the Social Gastronomy Movement, Gastromotiva believes that a multi-stakeholder approach accelerated by technology can drive us towards reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).”, explains Nicola Gryczka, CEO of Gastromotiva.
Gastromotiva will have a strong delegation at this years Annual Meeting: Founder David Hertz, CEO Nicola Gryczka, SGM co-founder Patrick Honauer, SGM Coordinator Charlotte Schaus, Gaelle Gros volunteer for the SGM and Communication & Marketing Manager Mariana Vilhena. The team presence is possible thanks to Cargill, DSM, LATAM Airlines and Mattos Filho that shares the beliefs on SDG17 that advocates to ‘Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development’.
