Are youth stakeholders part of the Pre-Summit?

The Food Systems Summit specifically invites the younger generation to take part. In the Netherlands Future Food Heroes aims to facilitate the organisation of youth-led action towards the UNFSS and related summits. Evi Vet and Eva Koffeman, the Dutch UN Youth Representatives on Biodiversity and Food, will use this platform to gather input for the summit.

Community on Facebook

Future Food Heroes is the online youth platform aimed at the transformation of our food systems. Members can use this group to post your questions, brainstorm, share events and activities, information, opportunities and to reach out to peers and organisations. Moreover, the platform allows them to inform themselves on the UNFSS, on relevant (youth) organizations and networks active in the field of food system transformation, and events, initiatives and activities related to this theme. Above all, this platform offers youth the opportunity to discuss the transformation of our food systems and make themselves heard at the UNFSS.

Evi Vet and Eva Koffeman, the Dutch UN Youth Representatives on Biodiversity and Food, will use this platform to gather input for the summit.

The transition to the food systems of the future is the central theme, viewed transcendently from different perspectives, to find answers together.
