The Summit will awaken the world to the fact that we all must work together to transform the way the world produces, consumes and thinks about food. It is a summit for everyone everywhere.

 

Transforming and strengthening our food systems is among the most powerful ways to make progress towards all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

 

Dialogues bring together a diversity of stakeholders, including voices that are seldom heard, and offer a powerful opportunity to have a seat at the table at this milestone UN Summit.

 

The systems that bring food to our tables have a profound impact on our economies, our health and the environment.
