The General Directorate for Research and Coordination of Sustainable Development of the Government of the Canary Islands has organised gastronomic workshops during the month of March with the aim of promoting sustainable habits in the restaurant industry of the archipelago as part of a comprehensive commitment to sustainability, as set out in the Canary Islands Agenda 2030.
The initiative is part of a project consisting of the preparation of a ‘Guide to Good Sustainable Practices in Canary Islands Gastronomy’, which is being promoted by the General Directorate, and the events will take place on seven islands, starting this Wednesday, 8 March, on the island of Gran Canaria.
With the title ‘Gastronomy and its impulse to the Canarian Agenda for Sustainable Development 2030’, the regional government aims to incorporate good environmental practices in the activity of the restaurant industry in the islands, which is becoming more and more thriving and prestigious inside and outside the Canary Islands.
Just like the guide, this initiative will serve to identify, disseminate and give visibility to the good practices that from gastronomy and all the activities that encompass it can promote the implementation of the Canary Islands Agenda 2030, comments the General Directorate led by David Padrón in a statement.
The first workshop will take place this Wednesday in Gran Canaria, from 16:00 to 19:00, at the Agricultural Training Centre in Arucas. On Friday, 10 March, it is planned to transfer the experience to El Hierro, at the El Mocanal cultural centre in Valverde, at the same time (from 16:00 to 19:00).
The workshops will continue on 13 March in Tenerife, with the same timetable and in the Adán Martín hall, at the headquarters of the Presidency of the Government of the Canary Islands in the capital of Tenerife.
On 15 March (Wednesday) it will be the turn of La Gomera, with the same time slot and in the Vivero Cruz Chiquita, in the capital of the Colombian island (San Sebastián de La Gomera).
