Make your pledge today
We know our current food systems contribute to ongoing health, climate and biodiversity crises, and violation of human rights. We will only be able to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals with a fundamental transformation of our food systems.
While we as young people have been excluded from most political and economic decision-making processes, we are also the ones who will live the longest with the consequences of decisions made today.
We pledge to act. And we demand urgent large-scale action from others, especially from decision-makers in government and business.
As youth we #Act4Food #Act4Change to support #GoodFoodForAll
