There was a large push at the SIANI Annual meeting in January 2015 for SIANI to involve more youth in the discussion around agricultural development, food security and nutrition. This call was heard and led to the launch of SIANI Youth – an initiative dedicated to creation and production of agriculture and food security related communication for the youngest members of the SIANI network.
Through different sessions and panel discussions, participants could learn more about the CBD, environmental governance and policy advocacy. There are also opportunities for youth to share how they fight for biodiversity in their own part of the world.
SIANI explored the theme of the World Food Forum from the perspective of healthy, nutritious and sustainable snacks in a virtual side event. The webinar was hosted together with WWF Sweden Youth and the Government of Sweden.
