“One of the exciting things about the summit is that it brings these five different communities together. There's the community that I'm immersed in; hunger, nutrition, and food safety - but there are these other communities involved. People that are worried about climate, environment, livelihood, and resilience. Food systems affect all of those things, and all of those things affect food systems," Said Dr. Lawrence Haddad, Executive Director of the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) and Chair of the UN Food Systems Summit Action Track 1, as he kicks off the conversation as co-host with Aaron Niederhelman.
The discussions in this first episode covers a lot of ground, but always seems to return to two subjects: food access, and the involvement of younger people. A successful movement lead by youth takes more than just a retweet or share; it requires meaningful conversations. Maureen Muketha, the founder of Tule Vyema, and youth activist Sophie Healy-Thow join as guests to discuss how to solve big problems tied to food access.
