Youth Food Movement

the power of food movement for nature

World Wide Fund for Nature

Director of the Youth Food Movement Joris Lohman tells about the relationship between nature and our food, and what actions and interventions are needed in the transition to a food system with respect for nature, humans, animals and the environment.

Throughout the world, more and more young people are increasingly aware of the role they can play in the transition to a more sustainable and healthier food culture. An important representative is the Youth Food Movement; part of the international Slow Food Youth Network. They are active since 2009 with the YFM Academy, actions and the annual Food Film Festival, and they are working on a chain-wide network of change-minded young professionals in agro and food.
