The CSIPM Youth Working Group has been actively participating in the CFS Policy Recommendations on Promoting Youth Engagement and Employment in Agriculture and Food Systems process, bringing among other topics a focus on human rights, based on existing instruments such as UNDROP and UNDRIP, and Agroecology as a real alternative for youth and the planet.
During the public briefing held on 21 June, youth voices from peasant organizations, Indigenous Peoples’ organizations, Women organizations, and other CSIPM constituencies in different territories, shared their perspectives, concerns, and priorities regarding the sections that integrate the CFS Policy Recommendations, which will be discussed during the second and final round of negotiations from July 4 to 6.
Now is the time to transform food systems!
