“Mobilizing Generation Zero Hunger”

I was part of the panel of Youth Leaders at a United Nations General Assembly High-Level Side Event, which occurred on September 26, 2015 at the United Nations Headquarters, New York, U.S.A.

The High-Level panel included the President of the Republic of Ireland — His Excellency Michael Daniel Higgins, the President of the 70th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, Brazilian professional footballer Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite (popularly known as Kaká ), the Director General of Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, Principals of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), the United Nations Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth, among others. The event was moderated by Femi Oke of Al Jazeera Media Network, at that time.

“Mobilizing Generation Zero Hunger” was the theme of the event. It focused on the adoption of the Post-2015 Agenda, which includes a Sustainable Development Goal to “End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.” The event demonstrated how the youth are crucial to achieving this Goal.

    Within our challenge of the month our highly valued partner and Peace Maker Ukpeme Okon published this blog on her Peace Agenda. Zero hunger can be achieved through values driven cocreation and sharing. We challenge the youngest generations to step out of the doninance of a destructive food chain and develop our direct relationship with food again ourselves using our right for self determination and becoming self sufficient together.
