The critical role that the food system plays in shaping our planetary and individual health is now undisputed. Our food systems are responsible for 30% of greenhouse gas emissions and the primary driver of biodiversity loss. Globally, 3 billion people cannot afford a healthy diet, whilst 1 in 3 people are living with overweight or obesity. Poor diets are responsible for 22% of adult deaths globally. We need change. We need a food system that ensures everyone, everywhere can access and afford a safe, sustainable and healthy diet.
Act4Food Act4Change is a youth led campaign which strives for a fairer, healthier and more sustainable food system with a goal of improving our global food system. The Act4Food pledge is a youth-led promise galvanising youth action to defeat hunger, improve health and heal the planet. Act4Change is a list of actions that young people want businesses and governments to make to improve the sustainability of our food system. We are now inviting all young change makers to vote for their top priority Actions 4 Change and to make their voice heard!

She will be joined by youth leaders from countries across the globe, differing sectors and youth organizations.
