Youth take charge of shaping the future of food at landmark event

The World Food Forum was conceived by the Youth Committee of the FAO. Working with youth networks at the other Rome-based UN food agencies, the Forum is aligned with the core principles of the Food Systems Summit. The aim is to listen to young voices and empower the younger generations to help forge a future of better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life for all.


本次世界糧食論壇由糧農組織青年委員會策劃,與其他常駐羅馬的聯合國糧農機構下屬青年網路合作,踐行糧食體系峰會的核心原則。論壇旨在傾聽青年心聲,賦予青年權能,為所有人實現更好生產、更好營養、更好環境和更好生活。



The Forum is based on the realization that while the younger generations have the most at stake, they also offer the kind of creativity, inventiveness and resilience needed to overcome the challenges. And there's never been a better time to tap into such potential: today there are 1.8 billion people between the ages of 10 and 24 - the highest number in history.


論壇認識到,雖然青年一代面臨嚴峻挑戰,但是他們富有創意、堅韌不拔,有能力克服重重困難。當今也是發掘青年力量的最佳時機:全球目前共有18億年齡在10至24歲的青少年,是有史以來人數最多的青年一代。


"Never before has there been such a singular opportunity for leveraging the passion and energy of youth for a better food future. And the World Food Forum is harnessing that energy," Qu said.


屈總幹事說:"我們應當抓住空前機遇,借助青年的熱情與力量,打造更美好的糧食未來。世界糧食論壇旨在把握這股力量。"


The World Food Forum isn't just using innovative ways to discover and scale up young people's most promising ideas, it is also providing young talents with tools and resources.


世界糧食論壇不僅採用全新方式,挖掘青年最具潛力的創意並付諸實踐;還為青年人才提供資源與工具。


The Transformative Research Challenge, for example, has made mentors available to young researchers to help them translate their ideas into top-notch research papers, grant proposals and policy suggestions. The Startup Innovation Awards has been connecting entrepreneurs with leaders in the investment, technology and policy communities. Masterclasses have offered lessons such as The Success Mindset, Food Systems and Nutrition Education, and Blockchain 101.


以"轉型研究挑戰"為例,該倡議為青年科研人員介紹導師,幫助青年發表研究成果,將他們的想法轉化為一流科研論文,撥款資助其方案和政策建議。"創新創業獎"則在創業家、投資人、技術和政策領域之間牽線搭橋。"大師班課程"提供"成功者心態"、"糧食體系與營養教育"、"區塊鏈101"等課程。
