Virtual Special Event: 31st Annual Martin J. Forman Memorial Lecture on Food and Youth: “What I have learned from young people and their desire to fix the food systems they live in”…….October 28, 2021, 10:00 am – 11:30 am EDT
In this year’s Martin J. Forman Memorial lecture, UNICEF’s Executive Director Henrietta H. Fore, an avid champion of children and young people’s rights, will reflect on the children and young people who have inspired her.
She will recount their struggles with the food choices they are making and the food environments in which they are making these choices, and will share how young people are contributing to the transformation of global and local food systems. Ms. Fore will offer concrete next steps on how to ensure that children and young people are at the center of discussions on food systems transformation.
Participants at the lecture will also have an opportunity to listen to youth representatives about their experiences and perspectives.
