UN Food Systems Summit Community launch

The 2021 UN Food Systems Summit will officially launch an online community platform on Thursday, January 21 to encourage public, global conversations as part of a year-long global dialogue leading up to the milestone event to transform food systems worldwide.

The Food Systems Summit Community will be open to everyone with an interest in following developments and contributing to the Summit, which seeks to identify new solutions to make food systems more equitable, sustainable and inclusive.

The platform will include a live activity feed and a public forum for each of the five “Action Tracks” or priority areas that will inform the Summit and the final country-level commitments.

The online community will also include updates from the Summit’s Champions Network, Scientific Group and Advisory Committee.

Throughout 2021, the UN Food Systems Summit will leverage the platform to update followers and supporters on progress, while offering opportunities for all actors to contribute to the discussion and outcomes in a clear and transparent way.

It will also consolidate the various engagements taking place in the lead-up to the Food Systems Summit, including the Summit Dialogues and bilateral events.

Users can register with the Food Systems Summit Community for free and join the conversation: https://foodsystems.community/register

About the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit

The UN Food Systems Summit was launched by UN Secretary-General António Guterres as part of the Decade of Action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. The Summit will launch bold new actions to deliver progress on all 17 SDGs, each of which relies to some degree on healthier, more sustainable and equitable food systems.

Guided by five Action Tracks, the Summit will bring together key players from the worlds of science, business, policy, healthcare and academia, as well as farmers, indigenous people, youth organizations, consumer groups, environmental activists, and other key stakeholders. Before, during and after the Summit, these actors will come together to bring about tangible, positive changes to the world’s food systems.
