GLF calls on youth to submit their ‘food and livelihoods’ success stories

23 Mar 2020

Your work in a nutshell

Have you developed a project or carried out research on a topic related to food and livelihoods? Tell us about it, and you could get your work showcased across the GLF’s global network as a peer-reviewed infobrief! 

Increasing global food production to satisfy the demands of a growing population doesn’t need to put further stress on the globe’s natural resources and its biodiversity. Today, food production and agricultural systems are one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions, a major driver of deforestation, and the greatest threat to biodiversity. It’s time to transform this problem into an opportunity to achieve more secure and nutritious food. If your project addresses this topic, this is your opportunity to share it with the world! 

Last year, the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL) and the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) launched their first three youth infobriefs, which were centred on the theme of rights. In 2020, GLF will focus on the critical theme of food and livelihoods, and so will this year’s youth infobriefs. 

Applications are now open; three projects will be selected to be published over the year. We acknowledge all entries but will contact only shortlisted candidates. 

Dates and Deadlines:

1st Publication: June 2020 – Closed

2nd Publication: August 2020 – Closed

3rd Publication: November 2020 – Deadline extended: October 15
