World Food Forum - Flagship Event

Call for
National and Partner Youth Delegations

The World Food Forum (WFF) is pleased to invite youth delegations from all its partners and collaborators to its second flagship event from 17 to 21 October 2022 in Rome, Italy.

The WFF flagship event, which will be organized as an in-person (hybrid) event, culminates all the activities of the Forum held throughout the year, including the Youth Action Assembly, innovation awards, educational activities, capacity development workshops, exhibitions, side events and cultural activities.

The event serves as an opportunity for young people and youth allies from across the globe to connect on the topics of food and agriculture, providing a space to voice their perspectives, learn from each other and from experts, and contribute their ideas on agrifood systems transformation to the policy products of the WFF.


Pre-registrations for delegations are now closed. Individual registrations will be open in August.


Delegates should be under the age of 36 and have a keen interest in shaping the future of our agrifood systems through youth engagement. Each delegation should nominate a lead, which will act as the focal point for the WFF Secretariat in all related communications. Minors are welcome with the written consent of their parents or guardians.


Pre-registered youth delegations will be invited for individual full registrations on the event platform where further details will be requested.


Delegate registrations without institutional affiliation are also possible for interested individuals as visitors. A call for registrations for individuals will be opening in the next few weeks. Follow our socials to keep up to date on the registration launch!
