As a collective force, young people have extraordinary potential to mobilise and influence tangible, positive change in our world’s food systems. Youth across the world are rallying behind #Act4Food #Act4Change. The innovative ideas and solutions of youth must be supported in the lead up to the UN Food Systems Summit and beyond. 

Our pledge brings together young people from around the world to focus on their personal actions as a contribution to system change.  

Actions 4 change urge all people, particularly governments, businesses, UN agencies and young people to act boldly and promptly.
