Title: Leveraging the Potential of Youth to Transform Global Food Systems
The Food System Summit Dialogue is an Independent Dialogue to gauge the aspiration, experience and ideas of youth in agriculture, major actors and young farmers as relate to food system in Liberia. It is a virtual engagement that will create a platform for youth voices to be heard and for them to access collaboration and networking opportunity. This is being organized by Agro Tech Liberia-Youth In Agriculture Incubation Center.

The youth in agriculture receive less support, attention and platform to make their voices heard. Therefore, this dialogue is most needed to bring youth around the table to discuss what they want to see done to improve the food system. This will also motivate many of the unemployed and economically challenged youth to take a look at getting involve in agriculture which will enhance food security at some level.

- Create a platform for youth to speak out in Liberia and global food system issues
