Event Description


The Harvard Club of Hong Kong is excited to host a dinner and panel discussion on current trends, ideas, and policies in sustainability, with a particular focus on the hospitality / F+B sectors in Hong Kong. The panel consists of three distinguished speakers: Heidi Yu Spurrel, CEO of Food Made Good; Rebecca Walker Chan, Founding Consultant of Southpaw Sustainability Consulting; and Diana Chen, Co-founder of Cavalry Wear.

During this panel discussion, we'll learn about the work of each of the panelists, explore the growing scope of sustainability practices in the F+B sector, and learn about the ways that food sustainability is being addressed locally in Hong Kong.

The dinner and discussion will take place at Osteria Marzia which has prepared a special sustainability-themed menu for this discussion. Though seating is limited to 20 people, we’ll have exclusive use of the entire space for our dinner and discussion.
