Youth for World Food Day: Feeding the world by investing in the future

In an ever faster changing world, it is more important than ever worthwhile to tap into the ideas of young people to take on the challenges that would keep us from achieving the SDGs.

At this side event, young people from across the world will share their perspectives on food-security issues and engage in dialogue with opinion leaders (government leaders, companies, NGOs, and members of the scientific community) to create impact for Zero Hunger. Leading up to the event, a challenge will be publicized to young people across the globe: What is your creative way to minimize food waste without sacrificing the consumption of fresh foods? Young people will come up with solutions for this challenge and present them in an inspirational way via video. The most original and passionate submissions will be shown to the live audience at the side event. In this way, the event celebrates the lifestyle of young people, which is partially led by internet development and shows the power of connectivity to take on challenges together.
