Make your pledge today

Happy International Youth Day! We at ACT4FOOD are so excited to launch our new brand on this very special day.

As part of this goal, we’ve gathered input from hundreds of thousands of young people around the world to create a set of ten actions. We urge governments and businesses to work on these ten actions in order to make our food system healthier, more sustainable and equitable for all.
