A Dinner to Celebrate Sustainable Eating and Farming
Wed. 26 April 2017, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm AEST
Join the UNAA Victoria's Young Professionals Committee for our Sustainability focused Dinner at Cecconi's!
Sustainable production and consumption of food is one of the most pressing issues impacting the world today. Addressed in both Goal 2 and Goal 12 of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, farming communities across the world are tackling the far-reaching impacts of climate change, sustainable waste management challenges and ongoing rising populations.
Join our committee on Wednesday April 26th for a sustainable dining experience at Melbourne's own Cecconi's on Flinders Lane to learn how head to tail sustainable cooking practices make a measurable difference to the local environment and community.
Our Guest Speakers
Cecconi's Head Chef Maurice Espositio will be joining us to talk about the restaurant's ongoing commitment to sustainability and how their collaborative efforts to minimise waste generation and maximise fresh local produce has promoted their sustainable initiatives across Melbourne.
