About the Bold Actions for Food as a Force for Good Summit

To feed more than 10 billion people within our planetary boundaries by 2050, while ending hunger and tackling unhealthy diets, we will have to fundamentally change the food system, requiring co-ordinated and large-scale action by all stakeholders across multiple axes.

The virtual pre-event Bold Actions for Food as a Force for Good on 23-24 November 2020 will be a key milestone leading to the UN Food Systems Summit in 2021 that will convene leaders from governments, private sector, civil society, international organizations alongside innovators, farmer leaders, financiers, experts, entrepreneurs and youth to initiate and accelerate action for food systems transformation.
