About the WFF Youth Focal Points Group
The World Food Forum (WFF) Youth Action Track Focal Points Group (FPG), with 12 youth leaders from across the globe, established the first cohort for the period 2022-2024.
The aim of this group is to draft youth policy positions on food and agriculture topics and coordinate regional activities, providing strategic direction for upcoming key events and the Youth Action Assembly during the WFF flagship event held in October of each year at FAO Headquarters in Rome, Italy. The 2022 flagship event provided youth leaders with the opportunity to share key priorities of youth with policy-makers to ensure greater access to safe and nutritious food. Some of the key messages were greater funding, equitable representation of people from different parts of the globe in deliberations and capacity building.
- Open to interested individuals between the age of 18 and 35 years;
- Applicants may be from anywhere in the world.
