Together with the University of West London and as part of The Protein Challenge 2040, we’ve created and piloted a series of sustainability-led lessons that can unlock young chefs’ potential to shape the future of food.

** Nature is Everyone’s Business:
Sign up to the Call to Action

The COVID-19 crisis has helped to underline the stark reality that human health is inextricably linked to planetary health. As an active member of the Business for Nature ([link removed][UNIQID]) coalition, Forum is working to help ensure that businesses around the world play a role in helping to drive ambitious policy and collective action on nature. And there couldn’t be a more critical time – in the lead-up to the UN Summit on Biodiversity, taking place on 21 September, and major global decision-making moments for nature in 2021 in the form of the Climate COP and the Convention on Biological Diversity COP, we are asking all our partners to consider signing up to the Business for Nature Call to Action ([link removed][UNIQID]) .

Please add your support by 1 September and send a clear message that nature really is everyone’s business.

** Fashion Positive launches Circular Materials Guidelines

Fashion Positive, a non-profit organisation operating out of Textile Exchange, has launched the first-ever Circular Materials Guidelines enabling innovators, manufacturers, and brands to design for the scale of safer, cleaner materials that build a more resilient Fashion Industry. Circular materials are critical to designing clothes and footwear for the highest value and long-lasting use, able to be reused, remade, and ultimately recycled or composted for a new life; in other words designed for the circular economy.
