Education for a Better Food Future

Food is a requisite for living and a central part of everyday life – yet how much thought do we give to the complexity of our agri-food systems and the challenges they face?

Where does our food come from? Do we really know exactly what we are eating? What is nutritious food and why is it so important for our physical and mental development?

Far too many children and teenagers lack access to food education and an understanding of how food systems work. Yet knowledge is a key driver for sustainable systemic changes and our global agri-food systems require a profound transformation – today more than ever. Hence, the World Food Forum Education track aims to provide access to knowledge and actionable solutions to drive this transformation, while inspiring children and youth to create a better food future for all.

Get involved

Are you a school class, teacher or scout and interested in becoming an active driver of change in your own community? Join in the fun and participate in the UN YUNGA labs and FAO´s Behaviour Change Science sessions for teachers, experts and youth.

Engage children, schools and youth through inspirational events like Junior World Food Day in October.

Share toolkits and resources to foster and improve food education and achieve behaviour change for a better food future.

Call upon children and youth to take action and become agents of change for sustainable agri-food systems transformation. Sign up for our mailing list and follow us on social media to keep up to date on our latest news. To become a volunteer, partner or sponsor, email us at [email protected].
