Food Wave – Empowering Urban Youth for Climate Action

Food is a driving factor of change in the environmental and the social context. Achieving a sustainable global food system is one of the major challenges to adapting to climate change and mitigate its effects by constructing a world in which sustainability is ensured for all. The Food Wave – Empowering Urban Youth for Climate Action has the aim to raise awareness among people aged 15 to 35 years about the importance of sustainable production practices and consumption habits in urban contexts, encourage activism and engagement, and provide tools for influencing decision makers. In this way, young people will be able to guide the global transition toward a sustainable food system by 2030. Food Wave intends to reach 15 million young people online and offline through activism, workshops, discussion forums, international exchange, street actions, art competitions, and film festivals held in partner cities in 15 European countries and one Latin American country. The project includes activation of a web platform and social channels for transmitting a digital campaign that involves an international network of influencers. Studies on food and climate change are also planned. The four-year program was launched on 1 December 2019; it is headed by the city of Milan and co-financed by the European Union Development Education and Awareness Raising (Europeaid DEAR) program.
