Act4Food Act4Change is a global youth-led movement promising to ignite a campaign action to combat hunger, improve health and heal the planet. The #Act4Food and #Act4Change campaign takes the form of a simple pledge and list of actions. The pledge brings together young people from around the world to focus on personal action and advocacy as a contribution to systemic change.
The overarching vision behind this global youth movement is to achieve sustainable global food systems that provide all people with access to healthy and sustainable diets. The pledge urges governments, businesses, UN agencies and youth counterparts to act boldly and promptly. The list of actions are what young people want businesses and governments to do in order to fix our broken food system. We are asking young people to contribute to shaping the food system of the future by voting for their priority Actions 4 Change.
This event ties with the UN Food Systems Summit, which is a people’s summit calling all factions of society to voice their opinions and take part in improving the food systems. This campaign is an initiative led by global youth asking for increased representation in decision making space and presenting policy recommendations to improve the food systems for all.
This event will mark the global launch of the initiative Youth Act4Food Act4Change campaign. In the event, the youth champions will introduce the pledge, the website, get live signatures, explain the idea behind Act4Food Act4Change GoodFood4All. Explain how in practice the pledge and the Act4Change will work giving concrete examples. Provide an interactive session to answer queries from the audience.
