UN Food System Summit | 3rd of June 2021

UN Food System Summit | Trilateral Independent Dialogue

Shift to healthy and sustainable consumption patterns. Focus on consumers’ education, innovative solutions and cross-borders learning experience.

  • Date: June 3rd 2021
    From Thursday, June 3, 2021, 13:30 GMT+2
    to Thursday, June 3, 2021, 16:00 GMT+2

The Summit will launch bold new actions to deliver progress on all 17 SDGs, each of which relies to some degree on healthier, more sustainable and equitable food systems. The initiative will awaken the world to the fact that we all must work together to transform the way the world produces, consumes and thinks about food. It is a summit for everyone everywhere – a people’s summit. It is also a solutions summit that will require everyone to take action to transform the world’s food systems.


Guided by five Action Tracks, the Summit will bring together key players from the worlds of science, business, policy, healthcare and academia, as well as farmers, indigenous people, youth organizations, consumer groups, environmental activists, and other key stakeholders. Before, during and after the Summit, these actors will come together to bring about tangible, positive changes to the world’s food systems.

About the Independent Dialogue
The success of the 2021 Food Systems Summit depends on the engagement of citizens all over the world. By convening or joining an Independent Dialogue, you can have a seat at the table and contribute directly to the Summit’s ambitious vision and objectives. But that’s not all: Dialogues also give you the chance to learn from others in your community, form new partnerships, and explore important challenges facing your local food system.
