Sustainable Gastronomy Day is an observance that highlights the importance of gastronomy in promoting sustainable food systems and the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The day aims to encourage adoption of sustainable dietary practices, reduction of food wastage, and preservation of culinary traditions, ensuring the future health of people and the planet. Sustainable gastronomy emphasizes the connection between food production, agriculture, and the environment, recognising the crucial role that sustainable, local, and traditional foods play in fostering a diverse, eco-friendly food landscape.
The United Nations General Assembly established Sustainable Gastronomy Day in 2016, acknowledging the potential of gastronomy as a cultural bridge and a tool for sustainable development. For Australians, the observance presents an opportunity to explore their rich culinary heritage, which includes a diverse range of native ingredients and Indigenous cooking methods. Additionally, Australia is a signatory to the Paris Agreement, demonstrating its commitment to address climate change and protect its unique ecosystem. Participating in Sustainable Gastronomy Day highlights the need for Australians to take responsibility for promoting ethical, sustainable, and environmentally conscious food production, distribution, and consumption.
Typically, the observance nationwide is marked by various events and activities, ranging from panel discussions and educational workshops to local food festivals and themed dinners hosted by restaurants or community groups. Australian chefs, food establishments, and individuals are also encouraged to source and utilise local, organic, and sustainable ingredients in their meals on this day. Sustainable Gastronomy Day is observed every year on the 18th of June, offering a chance for Australians to come together, celebrate their culinary culture, and take steps towards a more sustainable food future.
