Empowering Youth Food Systems Leaders
July 13 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 pm
The York Region Youth Food Committee is excited to invite you to our event titled “Empowering Youth Food Systems Leaders” which will take place on Tuesday July 13th and Thursday July 15th from 6:00-8:00pm EDT. This event is an Independent Dialogue for the 2021 Food System Summit hosted by the United Nations.
In this youth-led dialogue we will discuss food systems issues and how we can support youth to be agents of change in food system transformation. The discussion topics will focus on Food Justice and how to create Sustainable Food Systems.
The event will take place over Zoom with 30 min allotted to a guest speaker and 90 min allotted to small group discussion on each day. Discussion Groups will be composed of 6-10 participants with a Facilitator to help guide the conversation. The results from the discussion will be submitted as a report to the United Nations where it will be compiled with other dialogue reports to inform the UN Food System Summit taking place in Fall 2021.
Register HERE for one or both nights.
