Good France is a true link between chefs from around the world, it will celebrate the vitality of French cuisine. Organized on the initiative of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and the French Chef Alain Ducasse, this event contributes to the influence of French cuisine across five continents.
On March 21, in 150 countries, more than 5,000 chefs from around the world will propose their vision of a French-style dinner in an extensive programme celebrating sustainable cuisine. A menu for the planet: each menu will feature dishes that are low in fat, sugar and salt, and reflect concern for good food and the environment.
Good France is the demonstration of a cuisine rooted in its time that takes into account the need of the moment: respect for the planet and well-being.
All will be able to discover a festive gastronomy which values not only the artisans and the products of the soil, but also a responsible cooking, concerned with the preservation of the environment.
The theme of the 2019 edition of Good France will focus on "Sustainable development through responsible gastronomy and a commitment of leaders in the preservation of the planet". After the Paris Agreement on Climate, France must be at the forefront of global environmental mobilization. Thus, Good France supports our No More Plastic Foundation, committed to protecting the ocean and reducing plastics.
Thanks to the funds raised by this event, from May 2019, we will launch an awareness campaign dedicated to children and start an education workshop on plastic pollution developed for school entitled "Generation of Change".
The goal is to make the new generation aware that they can be the generation of change, to give them the taste of simple gestures that allow them to ban the plastic, gestures and practices that they will leave to their own children tomorrow. This workshop will also be an opportunity to share, with the complicity of teachers throughout the world, about the impact of the plastic pollution on the environment, our health and the future of the planet.
At the end of each workshop, every child will receive No More Plastic Voice for Good diploma; to encourage them to become ambassadors of this world that they must protect from ourselves, and from our plastic pollution.
It is also an opportunity to speak with them about the No More Plastic Turtle, which has an unusual shape. Our turtle has a wasp size because its shell was tightened by a ring from a plastic package of beer packs.
If this didn’t prevent him from growing, its shell deformed to present a strange appearance. More than a deformed turtle, it is today the symbol against plastic pollution in the ocean.
It is important for us to guide the new generation because they are the citizens, the entrepreneurs, the leaders, the inventors of tomorrow and they will have to decide to make choices to continue to advance humanity while protecting the natural resources of the world that keeps us alive.
Caroline de Maigret, French model, music producer, activist and mom, is the godmother of this first No More Plastic Kids awareness campaign.She is convinced, like us, that it is essential to educate, to guide these little men who will make the world of tomorrow.
