2.)    To identify food and nutrition-related regional challenges and cuisines, analyse them, find solutions and explore implementation opportunities
3.)    To study regional and global cuisines, review and test recipes applying/using different critical appraisal tools 
4.)    To incorporate latest culinary trends and scientific knowledge and translate it to different key groups, communities and households 
5.)    To facilitate the movement/action steps for change through the following action areas (co-developed by +900 chefs with a support of SDG2 Advocacy Hub)
