Food and agricultural systems have an enormous impact on human lives, especially in vulnerable communities, the lives of other animals, and the ecosystems and climate on which all species depend.
Sustainable, equitable consumption of food has to be a priority with natural resources under threat nearly everywhere, the climate emergency accelerating, and epidemics of food insecurity, poverty, and injustice. This side event will feature speakers from Asia, Africa, and the Americas presenting best practices and policies drawn from on the ground experience, idea laboratories, and a recent “good food” award competition in China. Opportunities for international cooperation in the food system across borders, silos, and worldviews will be explored. Leaders of Act4Food Act4Change will discuss the Youth Declaration for the UNFSS. Plus, members of Food@COP, a global network of youth climate activists, will link UNFSS outcomes with priorities for the COP26 climate summit.
Organizer: Brighter Green, the Good Food Fund (China), Food@COP, Act4Food Act4Change, Planting Change Foundation
