Registration is open for the WFF Masterclass: "The Right to Food: how to become an effective youth advocate"

Events - 05.09.2023

Addressed to young people, this Masterclass aims to provide practical tools and useful knowledge on what is the right to food and how it relates to consumer advocacy. It will an opportunity to learn how to develop a strong narrative on the importance of securing the right to food for all, design campaigns to guarantee the right to food, create consumer networks and coalitions to move forward the issue of the right to food, and engage with governments (national and local) and businesses to respect, protect and fulfill consumer rights to food.

The event seeks to provide youth with the necessary knowledge and skills to get into the workforce and actively shape agrifood systems to optimize human and planetary health jointly.

The masterclass is organized by Consumer International and FAO, with the support of the World Food Forum (WFF). delivered by one or two expert instructors who offer hands-on learning based on their own knowledge, information, and experience.

Background information

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a landmark document that sets out, for the first time globally in history, the fundamental human rights to be universally respected, protected and fulfilled. Although this year marks the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration, the right of everyone to have access to safe and nutritious food, in line with the human right to adequate food and the fundamental right of everyone to be free from hunger, remains an unfulfilled legal obligation in many parts of the world.

Governments have the primary responsibility to ensure the full realization of the right to adequate food for all, and we are all stakeholders. Understanding what can be done to guarantee the right to food by providing the necessary tools to enable youth to be agents of change and advocate for more efficient, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable agrifood systems is central.

Further details on the agenda and programme will be shared soon.
