Launched in 2021, the World Food Forum (WFF) is an independent, youth-led global network of partners facilitated by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). It aims to spark a global movement that empowers young people everywhere to actively shape agrifood systems to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and a better food future for all.
The WFF serves as the premier global forum to harness the passion and power of youth to identify solutions and incite positive action for agrifood systems. It aligns with the 2021 United Nations (UN) Food Systems Summit, acts as major youth platform in global food governance, and serves as a global think tank that fosters youth-led solutions in innovation, science and technology. The WFF aims to support and grow youth initiatives in the agrifood sector in line with global youth policy recommendations, focusing in 2023 on the theme, “Agrifood systems transformation accelerates climate action.”
Three of our activists at the forefront of the fight against climate change will be amongst of the protagonist of the event with the workshop Youth-led street actions: raising awareness of the food-climate nexus.
This workshop will focus on how young people can engage their local community in taking steps for less impactful food production and consumption, starting from the street action model. A capacity-building opportunity, the workshop will be based on the experiences of the young activists involved in Food Wave project, and will present tips for creating a street action: a tool to bring together local communities and raise awareness of the food-climate nexus, in co-creation with local authorities
