E.A.T. Borneo’s first homegrown conference, titled Innovate. Elevate. Celebrate., was focused around FOOD and took place in October 2022, in Kuching, Malaysia’s UNESCO “City of Gastronomy.” The driving force behind this movement was the idea of sustainability and security, to address the fact that significantly more resources go into our global food system than come out of it. Food connects people. Food is political. Food is our past, present and future. Food is art, culture and a way of life. Meaningful dialogue and shared learning becomes a catalyst for growth and future collaborations with diverse people from the food system from across the world. E.A.T. serves as a platform to initiate and negotiate conversations, enable more creations, elevate connections and celebrate different producers and consumers in the food system. Conversation does matter, and we’re all strangers at first. To address change, it needs conversation and negotiation between various people from diverse backgrounds. This year’s conference theme, Collaborate. Curate. Co-Create, focuses on the many cultures from Southeast Asia.
