18 June is observed as a Sustainable Gastronomy Day globally. The day aims to focus the attention of the world on the role that sustainable gastronomy plays in our lives. The Sustainable Gastronomy Day was designated by United Nations General Assembly on 21st December 2016.

The Gastronomy means the practice or art of choosing, cooking, and eating good food. In other words, Sustainable gastronomy takes into account where the ingredients are from, how the food is grown and how it gets to our markets and eventually to our plates. The Sustainable Gastronomy Day reaffirms that all cultures and civilizations are contributors and crucial enablers of sustainable development.
