Youth Leaders Campaigning for 17 Food System Actions at UN Pre-Summit

Youth Leaders Leading Food System Change

“A group of 24 young leaders around the world are pushing businesses and governments to commit to food system change as part of the Act4Food Act4Change campaign. During the United Nations Food Systems Pre-Summit in July 2021, the team will present the 17 actions they think have the power to catalyze a food revolution.

Each initiative addresses a longstanding food system issue, such as food waste, meat consumption, and unhealthy and unaffordable meals. The global campaign is encouraging young people under the age of 30 to vote for the actions most important to them. The top five actions will then be unveiled during the official summit, which kicks off on September 1.

The campaign also features a pledge for youth to sign, which acknowledges that “our current food systems contribute to ongoing health, climate and biodiversity crises, and violation of human rights.” Signees commit to transforming the food system by demanding “urgent large-scale action from others, especially from decision-makers in government and business.” More than 1,300 people from 81 countries, including Norway and Egypt, have signed the pledge so far.”
