At Young Summits, African and Dutch youth jointly discuss solutions for world food challenges. From a region that thrives on development and innovation in agri food, the city of Ede acknowledges the pledge for #ZeroHunger. Located in a municipality that takes its food policy seriously, World Food Center is able to turn its ambitions into action. Initiative for the solution oriented Young Summits at World Food Day 2018 is taken by I4Nature, the organization responsible for activation and involvement of youth.
World Food Day
World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on 16 October in honor of the date of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945. The day is celebrated widely by many other organizations concerned with food security, including the World Food Programme and the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
Young Summits – Combat #ZeroHunger
- Do you have ideas how young people from Europe can help young people in agriculture in African countries like Mozambique, Sudan, Kenya or Ethiopia?
- How can your ideas facilitate young people in Africa from the bottom up, are there digital tools you would suggest to supply them with demand based knowledge?
- How could you create career or work perspective for young people in Africa, living in cities as well as in the country side, regarding a role in food production in rural areas?
I4Nature is identifying ideas & strategies from young people and young professionals to contribute to the challenges of the Taskforce For Rural Africa (TFRA) to support youth embarking on a career in agriculture, agribusiness and agroindustry.
Ideas can be shared on World Food Day, in person, in Ede or live from anywhere via Skype or FaceTime.
Live broadcast on www.i4nature.world. All the ideas will be shared with the TFRA and give follow up to create impact!
