Registrations are now closed for this event. However, registration is still open for other lead-up events and Climate Jamboree Finale. 
While you are here, why not take the pledge for sustainability - your first step towards shaping our common future. 

Our food choices impact both – the health of humans and that of the earth. Sustainable food, which is nutritious, seasonal, traditional, local, safe and eco-friendly, can help to achieve better health for all and a clean environment.

Green on my Plate is a unique challenge which encourages participants to think about environment-friendly food choices through a recipe contest.


Participants must submit a photograph and the recipe of a self-cooked nutritious dish, which uses locally sourced/traditional/seasonal ingredients with minimal ecological footprint and wastage.
