***NOTE: The first event below starts tomorrow, 6 May!***
This fall UN Secretary General António Guterres is convening a global food systems summit (dates TBA). Summit preparation is well underway. The vision and goals for the summit have been set, and 5 action tracks are working toward the summit.
To help prepare for the summit, the WEA has been working with several other religious organizations as part of the Food + Faith Coalition to develop 5 Food + Faith Dialogues based on the summit’s 5 action tracks. These dialogues have been designed in collaboration with the UN and the action track leaders, who sincerely want to receive the input of religious groups and organizations. This is the first step in LWCCN’s engagement with the UN Food Systems Summit where we will present our Christian views.
The first Food + Faith Dialogue: Food Security, Access and Justice is May 6th at 10 AM, EST (New York time). Please register at this link:
The other Food + Faith Dialogues are on May 13, May 20, May 27, and June 3. To learn more, and register for all 5 Food + Faith Dialogues, go to this link.
A LWCCN UN Food Systems Summit Working Group to be convened in June. Further information will be announced in June’s Pollinator. If this is of interest please send us an email.
