The Food Systems Summit is for everyone, and its success relies on people everywhere getting involved and sharing their views. The Summit's leadership and Action Tracks are working hard to bring forward a series of concrete actions that people can take to support a transformation of the world's food systems, so always check back here to find new ways to contribute.
Here is a list of ways that you can support the Summit process now and join the movement towards safe, equitable and sustainable food systems around the world:
Leading up to the first-ever UN Food Systems Summit, we are inviting you to join us for a Good Food For All – Global *virtual* Shared Meal with thousands of others around the world on Sunday, 19 September 2021!
Discussing the opportunities and challenges of your local food system over a healthy climate-friendly dish, this will mark the first of many #SustainableSundays! All you have to do is post a picture of a healthy, climate-friendly meal you’re eating on the day using #GoodFood4All +#UNFSS2021.
Get started by downloading the easy step-by-step guide below, and we have even added some simple recipes if you don’t know where to start! Be sure to tag us on Twitter @FoodSystems, Facebook @UNFoodSystems, Instagram @UNFoodSystems, and @Upworthy.
Help us spread the word to others with the campaign's social media materials here.
Bring your community together and host a Good Food For All – Watch and Do Party during the UN Food Systems Summit on 23 September 2021.
How? Create an online meeting using your favourite platform and stream the morning’s People’s Plenary or another Summit session throughout the day. You can also share your thoughts and reactions through the Summit's virtual platform chat tool. Camera shy? No problem! Organise a group chat to share live commentary and reactions with your networks instead. Stay tuned for programme updates here and get your invitations out!
Promote your party online and grow your guest list, then on September 23 share your party photos and join the conversation on social media with the hashtags #GoodFood4All + #UNFSS2021.
With the UN Food Systems Summit fast approaching on September 23 we’re kicking off a #FoodSystems4SDGs countdown – 17 days to highlight how transforming our food systems can help the world achieve critical progress on all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)!
The myriad ways in which we produce, process, and consume food—our food systems—touch every aspect of human existence. Running from September 6 - 22, the countdown campaign will unpack one SDG per day to highlight the relationship between better food systems and making progress across all of the SDGs to build a resilient world where no one is hungry, no one is poor, and no one is left behind. And we want your help to spread this important message on social media.
Join the #FoodSystems4SDGs conversation, champion an SDG, and be a #FoodSystemsHero with our social media toolkit!
The Summit Community is a highly collaborative space to guide the science, solutions, concepts and outcomes of the Summit. The platform is open to anyone with an interest in food systems at all levels, and will be a key entry point for stakeholder engagement on defining the solutions.
YOU can join the community and contribute:
1. Sign up to join discussions across all communities.
2. Join a community group, respond to ongoing discussions, or start one!
3. Connect with members, and grow your network and community.
4. Share links, videos, photos and tell your story in any of the communities.
Food Systems Summit Dialogues offer a powerful opportunity for people everywhere to have a seat at the table at this milestone UN Summit. Dialogues bring together a diversity of stakeholders, and provide an important opportunity for participants to debate, collaborate, and take action towards a better future for food systems.
Climate, nature, nutrition and health are important to us all. By transforming food systems, we can address critical challenges and unlock opportunities to realize a healthier, more sustainable and more equitable world. If you support this vision, we invite you to become a Food Systems Hero!
