Dear colleagues, 

The Food and Nutrition Division (ESN) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in collaboration with the Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) and with the support of the Scaling up Nutrition Civil Society Network (SUN CSN) are organizing a side event at the pre-COP 26 hosted by the Italian government to showcase the importance of youth for transformative action by highlighting innovative youth-led ideas and programmes linking climate change, biodiversity and nutrition. 

The event will showcase innovative programmes bridging the climate change, biodiversity and nutrition nexus. A diverse group of youth speakers and panelists from different backgrounds and continents, will present how they leverage opportunities for biodiversity preservation, climate adaptation and mitigation, whilst enabling access to healthy and nutritious diets.
