#ACTIONFORCHANGE Trasformiamo insieme queste parole in azioni.



#ActionForChange is an opportunity for launching a global call to action for a more sustainable world, spreading knowledge on the Sustainable Development Goals, raising awareness, advocating and engaging a variety of stakeholders for their implementation by 2030.

Science, policy-makers, private sector, media, civil society and individuals all have an important role to play in mobilizing active and responsible action, engagement and participation in shaping the future of the global food system.

Based on their experience, highly reputed experts and opinion leaders shared with us their #actionforchange towards sustainability in the food system.

We hope their contributions will inspire your own #actionforchange.
