Special - National Food Strategy Youth Consultation
Season 5, Ep. 1
The Food Foundation spoke to 426 young people across the country in September and October 2020 to find out their views and priorities for the future of food in Britain.
Twenty of those young people joined together on Zoom to dive deeper into food systems and refine their ideas and priorities. They then presented their policy proposals to invited decision makers. The report and their recommendations fed directly into the National Food Strategy.
In this first episode, our group of twenty explore what it means to be a citizen and an advocate, they explore what a food system looks like for different products and they consider the problems, causes and solutions of food system issues and how they interact.
