About the Session
In celebration of UNESCO’s World Day for Cultural Diversity on May 21st and World Biodiversity Day on May 22nd, watch the public launch of the ‘In Good Taste’ food sustainability documentary at the World Biodiversity Forum.
With themes ranging from mouthfeel to regenerative agriculture, indigenous food knowledge, and biodiverse diets, ‘In Good Taste’ reveals solutions to save our planet and our personal health. Changing human behavior is a matter of deliciousness or desirability. On the virtual stage of the World Biodiversity Forum, this event saw panelists discuss how we can mobilize for positive impact through personal taste.
UN Sustainable Development Goals Addressed
Context On Food Sustainability
In a world where we celebrate caviar and foie gras as the pinnacle of luxury and forego the goodness that sprouts up at our feet, the hidden costs are more than the price itself. This documentary illuminates the unsustainable consequences of our monoculturalistic desires, including the homogenization of food, diet, and thought. The solution to reclaiming our own tastes points to biodiversity (and more generally, diversity) as a solution, celebrating the complexity of diversity.
