SDG e-conference: Foodathon

As an integral part of the conference “Towards Zero Hunger: Partnerships for Impact”, a special e-conference is organized to get students and young professionals engaged with SDG 2 Zero Hunger. The SDG e-conference provides a digital platform through which youth worldwide can interact, exchange knowledge and create solutions to challenges related to Zero Hunger. The main event of the e-conference is the Foodathon, a 36-hour event in which participants find local solutions to global hunger problems by working in interdisciplinary teams. For more information about the Foodathon, follow this link.

The main aim of the e-conference is to bridge the gap between knowledge and practice on the SDGs. Although many students and young professionals are aware of the existence of the Goals, there is little knowledge and visibility of the practical interaction between younger generations and the SDGs. By exchanging knowledge, sharing ideas and tackling global challenges related to Zero Hunger from different disciplinary angles, participants of the SDG e-conference will gain both knowledge and practical experience in working with the SDGs. This will contribute to transforming the complex image of the SDGs into a more comprehensive set of practical approaches related to daily practices. As such, participants create solutions for impact.
