On occasion of the Education Ministers’ Meeting, the Labour and Employment Ministers’ Meeting and the Labour and Employment and Education Joint Ministerial Session held in Catania under the G20 framework, Future Food Institute is organizing a dense agenda of official side events in Palazzo Biscari, Catania.
This initiative is framed in the context of Food For Earth, a long term partnership between the Future Food Institute and FAO, a collaboration that aims to accelerate the ecological transition of global agri-food systems, empowering and connecting youth and change makers, scientists, innovators, industries, broader society and policy makers. This G20 Edition wants to ensure that world leaders listen not only to voices representing government, business sectors, youth, women, civil society, and science, but also to the proposals and demands of those responsible for “Feeding the Planet” – “Food”, feeders, farmers, and food producers, because the “great challenge of our era is to succeed in protecting our planet, by feeding humans in a healthy way and by taking care of the ecosystem that is hosting us.
