We are increasingly seeing youngsters like Greta Thunberg take centre stage in pushing for actions that can accelerate solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. This is a trend with huge potential for speeding up the types of transformations needed to secure a sustainable future for the planet.
The world’s leading food innovation summit, Seeds&Chips – which we are media partners with – sees this. To harness it, the organisers have teamed up with Fondazione Francesca Rava – N.P.H. Italia Onlus, a ‘charitable non profit foundation that helps children in serious need in Italy and worldwide’ to launch the ‘Call for Teenovators’. This initiative is open to 13 to 17 year olds with big ideas for reshaping food systems and tackling the UN Global Goals.
Teenovators will be given a platform at the fifth edition of Seeds&Chips, from May 6-9, 2019 in Milan. By opening conference sessions they will share their ideas and values with some of the world’s most influential decision makers.
