Ms. Gita Sabharwal
The UN Resident Coordinator
It's our great honor to invite Ms. Gita Sabharwal, the UN Resident Coordinator, United Nations Thailand gave an opening remark at this year's Zero Summit. Ms. Gita spoke about the power of the new generation in creating change for sustainability. Especially the issue of food waste and food insecurity which need serious action as the world population just hit 8 billion. She would love to see the SOS model replicated in other regions.
Mr. Bo H Holmgreen
Founder and CEO of SOS
Mr. Bo Holmgreen, Founder and CEO of Scholars of Sustenance Foundation, officially welcomed all the distinguished guests. Mr. Bo told a story about the beginning of the foundation. He himself saw a lot of food that was unfortunately thrown away. But on the other hand, there are still people who are hungry and want access to good quality food. That’s why we want to close the gap between surplus food and people in need.
Mr. James Leyson
Managing Director SOS TH and PH
Mr. James Leyson, Managing Director of Scholars of Sustenance Thailand and Philipines talked about SOS's journey including the next vision of the foundation to address the problem of food waste and food equality. Firstly, we targeted to achieve 25 million meals by 2025 but with the cooperation of everyone, we already made it this year! So we set a new goal of 40 million meals that we intend to achieve by 2025.
