On International Youth Day August 12, 2021, we are giving you the opportunity to be part of something BIGGER! Sharing your story on Environment and Food Systems. International Youth Day is celebrated annually on 12 August to bring youth issues to the attention of the international community and celebrate the potential of youth as partners in today’s global society. As such, in collaboration with the UN Environment Programme and HIRED Consult, the Children and Youth Major Group is putting together a dialogue to amplify Youth Voices (activities, stories and inspirations) in support of the UN Food Systems Summit 2021. The purpose of the dialogue is to identify and mobilize Youth globally on Environmental Issues, Ideas, and Solutions to Food Systems. Secondly, it is organized to echo Youth Voices in the Environment space working on Food System activities/Projects.
