Food Wave

Empowering Urban Youth
for Climate Action

#FOODWAVE #CATCHTHEWAVE

BJCEM is proud to be part of the DEAR community with #FoodWave, a project that will bring together and enable young people from 17 countries to raise their voice for food and #climatejustice. In particular BJCEM will launch a visual art contest for young activists, in the third year of the project.
Food Wave has the aim to create awareness on sustainable ways to consume and produce food for climate change mitigation and activate young people in their cities, in order to enable them to influence institutional decisions, so they can lead us to a sustainable global food system by 2030. The project is co-funded by the EU and promoted by the Municipality of Milan together with ActionAid Italia, ACRA, Mani Tese and 25 project partners in 17 countries. The network consists of 14 cities, 5 municipal agencies and 6 civil society organizations closely linked with the cities. C40, the international network of cities engaged in the fight against climate change, is also affiliated to the project.
