Plan a virtual IYAFA event

Plan an event online using platforms, such as Skype or Zoom, to bring people together and celebrate the IYAFA virtually. Another option can be to use social media platforms that have live video streaming functions to engage with a wider audience.

Festivals and fairs

Take a fresh approach by considering different activities or new formats for events – either by going digital or respecting any physical distancing measures. Organising events, such as food tastings, cooking demonstrations and exhibitions can be just as effective and engaging online.

City and public transport branding

Approach municipalities, outdoor advertisers, or transportation companies to place IYAFA communication products, such as the IYAFA poster or promo video.

Get the media involved!

Approach advertising contacts in TV stations to place the IYAFA spot. Share ideas with the IYAFA team on where you hope to place any promo material, and we will produce it in the language you need.

Lectures, panels and roundtables

Organise or sponsor a public lecture with political leaders, educators, scientists and fish farmers using an online platform and invite people to attend virtually. Use your food systems lecture to promote solutions and actions that inspire participants and host a forum or questions and answers session afterwards to encourage involvement.
