The World Food Forum (WFF) is a youth-led movement and network to transform our food systems to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, in alignment with the United Nations Food Systems Summit. It features a range of activities and events including Youth Action Assembly, Innovation Labs, Educational Activities, Cooking, Film and Music. The first WFF flagship event launched in October 2021, showcasing the voices and ideas of youth through a range of Youth Action Assembly side events on 3-4 October.

Since 2020, national governments and food systems actors in 50 countries have collaborated with the EU, FAO and CIRAD to carry out participatory food systems assessments in support of the transition to more sustainable food systems. This side event focuses on the youth aspects of the Rapid Food Systems Assessment results, which have identified a set of sustainability issues that emerge across regions and singled out some levers for continued engagement of youth in a sustainable and dynamic food system. This WFF side event brings together young people who are innovating in food systems and implementing game changing actions in their fields to discuss the impact of their work on their communities and the recommendations and inspirations they can provide to other young food systems actors (current or aspiring).


This WFF Flagship side event was organized by the FAO Investment Centre.
