Options & Barriers for youth inclusion in food systems transformation.
Young people play an important role in addressing the climate crisis. However, barriers still exist for them to be included in the decision-making processes. In order to unlock the full potential of youth to contribute to food systems transformation, and contribute to a more sustainable future, this session will expose key barriers in the food and climate space that lead to incomplete youth inclusion in policy- and decision making processes, as well as promote options offered and made available by different stakeholders and organizations.
Specific focus will be placed on barriers linked to inclusivity in the policy space and decision-making processes, as well as on the labor market (linked to funding of youth advocates). Thereby, there will be space to specifically focus on barriers for young farmers and youth from indigenous communities to get engaged in the aforementioned spaces.
