Youth setting the agenda: Food and agriculture
Young people are proving their commitment to a sustainable future by changing the way they eat, with the number of vegans in the UK quadrupling in the last five years. In parallel, we also see a growing movement towards regenerative farming. Both movements could make a dramatic difference in the fight against climate change, but is the food industry supporting them? 

The second Race to Zero event will discuss agriculture from soil to store to plate. How can we build a sustainable food system that gives young people vocational opportunities and ensures that we are not left with a barren planet?
