Food Systems Summit Dialogues
Food Systems Summit Dialogues are critical to the Food Systems Summit process. The Dialogues offer a purposeful and organized forum for stakeholders to come together to share their roles in food systems, consider their impacts on others and find new ways to come together in support of the Sustainable Development Goals. The Dialogues are an opportunity for all citizens to engage as stakeholders in the world’s food systems; they bring people together at a time when so much is pushing us apart.
Start a Summit Dialogue
Everyone is invited to organize or participate in a Food Systems Summit Dialogue. Dialogues give all participants an opportunity to contribute to designing the food systems of the future, and to explore how they can work together to make the transformations happen in the coming decade.
The Summit Dialogues use a standardized approach to convening, curating and facilitating structured conversations among groups with different perspectives on how to get their food systems to work for the common good. The structured method of the Summit Dialogues supports the engagement leading up the 2021 Summit by welcoming a diversity of views, seeking out new connections and establishing pathways for equitable and sustainable food systems transformation. The Summit Dialogues are guided by a toolkit, training materials and a means to share findings publicly. The outcomes of the Summit Dialogues will inform the Summit process and help to guide individual and collective action towards a future of food that is sustainable, equitable and secure.
