Official Dialogue Feedback to the United Nations 2021 Food Systems Summit
Type of Dialogue
Please review the details below for registration information if available or contact the Convenor if you would like to attend.
Bites of Transfoodmation is a Swiss project that brings together a unique group of young, motivated individuals to elaborate a shared vision for a more sustainable and resilient future of food systems. During the first dialogue, the young change-makers acknowledged the need for a change of narrative with a stronger focus on embracing diversity, bringing about a culture of empowerment and rethinking our habitats while reconsidering the value of food through the lenses of a true cost approach. This second dialogue will, thus, embrace the diversity and multiplicity of experiences by inviting a number of participants to share their own stories and discuss the role and interconnection of food and health in specific circumstances, i.e. refugee camps, sports and medical patients. Important topics such as personalized nutrition, social determinants of health, inequalities, accessibility and affordability will be at the center of this conversation. The ultimate goal is to contribute to the Food Systems Summit by bringing forward the voice of the young generation and, in doing so, assist in the realization of a People’s Summit.
