Civil Society Public Forum

The Civil Society Public Forum is part of a series of open-door events starting last year, to allow everyone, everywhere to get involved and ask questions on the Summit engagement process. During this Forum, representatives from each of the five Action Tracks and the Food Systems Summit Dialogues will share progress of idea-generation, and next steps in the Summit process.

The conversation will focus on the emerging Action Areas and Solution Clusters with an invitation for participating in and building coalitions as a part of the Summit and post-Summit engagement. Participants will also be invited to reflect on progress and provide feedback.
