Driving global youth action for climate adaptation in food systems

Milan, Italy – 29 September 2021

#Act4Food Youth event at Youth4Climate: Driving Ambition 

The #Act4Food Youth event is an official side-event of the ‘Youth4Climate: Driving Ambition’ – a landmark youth event hosted by the Italian Government just prior to Pre-COP26 – https://all4climate2021.org/

The event is intended for youth from all around the globe to participate and engage in efforts and movements around food security under a changing climate. The event also aims to create awareness of the Pledge initiative – a youth-led promise galvanising action to defeat hunger, improve health and heal the planet. The pledge brings together young people from around the world to focus on their personal action as a contribution to system change, and to urge governments and businesses to act boldly and urgently. 

The event is planned to be held as a hybrid event – to cater for both in person attendance and also virtual attendance around the globe. It will consist of two sessions – the first session “Paving the way for youth-led action for climate adaptation in food systems” will feature a keynote presentation followed by a roundtable of three youth climate leaders from different regions presenting their vlog presentation to showcase examples of youth-led efforts, which aims to inspire further youth-led action around the world. The second session “Mobilizing Youth-POWER for COP26: The rise of a global movement” will be chaired by a youth activist and influencer to introduce the Pledge that aims to gather 100 million signatures of young people across the globe, to push for nutrition and food system transformation.
