Strategic partnerships that support the empowerment of youth are the very heart of the World Food Forum.

Considering the growing challenges facing our agrifood systems, we believe that it is only through strategic partnerships that we can drive a shared vision of an empowered global youth contributing towards a better food future for everyone, everywhere. Join us in this exciting journey as we empower a movement of young leaders actively shaping global and local agrifood systems.
