Promoting youth in food systems – today and tomorrow: A discussion session at SIANI Annual Meeting 2021

As the food systems discussions kick off during 2021 and the end of COVID-19 is getting closer, the enormous challenges and threats from climate change and environmental degradation are intensifying. The global community’s actions to create sustainable food systems and to fight climate change during 2021 will have long-lasting effects, not least for the young people.

This session asks: How can we ensure that youth are central in the food systems transformation? And what challenges do youth engaged in food systems experience today?
