UNICEF & Western Sydney University will host the launch of Fix My Food: Children's views on transforming food systems.
The report details children's experiences and perspectives on food systems, and their ideas and recommendations about what they want families, communities, organisations, governments and young people themselves to do, to rethink and rework food systems for the 21st century.
Over 700 children and young people worldwide provided insights, with supporting data from UNICEF's U-Report poll. UNICEF and the Young and Resilient Research Centre at Western Sydney University consulted children and young people about food, food environments, and food practices.
The study aims to guide nation-states, NGOs, and other organisations to help shape action to transform food systems into more effective and sustainable and deliver on children's rights. Outcomes will directly contribute to the UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) in 2021, and will be presented as part of UNICEF’s global Food Systems Dialogue with children.
The online event will discuss the report's key findings with young people.
