Paul Newnham is my guest today on Inside Ideas. Paul heads up the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 Advocacy Hub as Director, an initiative bringing together NGOs, advocacy groups, civil society, the private sector and UN agencies to coordinate global campaigning and advocacy to achieve zero hunger, SDG2.
To this end, the SDG2 Hub facilitates a network of 800 chefs from 80 countries to support chef action on the SDGs. Chefs are equipped with a simple set of actions called the Chefs’ Manifesto, to drive progress on the Global Goals.
With over 25 years’ experience in the Not For Profit Sector, Paul has worked in national and global roles focused on campaigning, youth mobilisation, advocacy, marketing and communication. And throughout his career has focused on the belief that it is possible to end global poverty.
Paul continues to specialise in generating solutions to complex problems in collaboration with communities around the world. Working strategically alongside actors from all aspects of the food, agriculture and nutrition industries, he seeks to generate change that will impact our food system and planet.
Inside Ideas is on every Tuesday + Thursday. You can watch all the shows on YouTube, and listen to the audio wherever you get your podcasts.
