Sustainability Education for Culinary Professionals: Online Webinar Series

Chefs are experts at making every crisis an opportunity. During these times of challenge caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is no different. While it is a time of great uncertainty, our industry is one of resilience and grit. Worldchefs encourages chefs to take this time to focus on what can be done to build a better future.

Worldchefs has developed a free webinar to help our community bolster their resumes and bring sustainable practices to foodservice. The Sustainability Education for Culinary Professionals teaches chefs how to think and act sustainable, to lead positive change for the planet – and for the improved profitably in the kitchen. The curriculum was developed by Worldchefs as a Feed the Planet initiative, powered by our partners Electrolux Food Foundation and AIESEC.

This 7 day online seminar is hosted by Chef Chris Koetke, Chairman of the Feed The Planet Committee, and covers 7 important topics:

  • Day 1 (2PM - 3PM CET, 15 April 2020) - Introduction to Sustainability
  • Day 2 (2 PM - 2:45 PM CET, 16 April 2020) - Agriculture

  • Day 6 (2 PM - 2:45 PM CET, 22 April 2020) - Water
  • Day 7 (2 PM - 2:45 PM CET, 23 April 2020)- Waste Management

A Feed The Planet certificate will only be issued to participants who complete all 7 seminars.
