Catch the wave, lead the change.

CATCH THE WAVE

Together we can stop the climate change

We are an international community of young people who are active across 17 countries worldwide. Our aim is to create awareness of sustainable approaches to consuming and producing food in our cities in support of climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, and to have an influential voice in institutional decisions, so we can achieve a fair and sustainable global food system by 2030.

Food: our powerful factor
for change

What we farm, eat and waste carries significant effects on our health, as well as on environmental, social and economic justice. We believe that everyone has the right to food and climate security; that malnutrition can be overcome, and that communities should be able to live in harmony with nature. We can do this – join us now to find out how!

How can we reach our final goal?

A fair and sustainable food system means respecting human rights and the planet’s boundaries. By walking this path together, we will manage to guarantee livelihoods for everyone, and countries will be able to achieve both the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals and those of the Paris Agreement. Let’s give it a try!
