Winning The Hunger Games – One of the greatest challenges of our time
World leaders, through the United Nations, have adopted the most ambitious agenda in human history – the Sustainable Development Goals. Among the 17 goals, which are focused on people, planet and prosperity, is a call for zero hunger by 2030. Never before has humanity had such an opportunity. The world is now echoing the call that The Hunger Project declared in 1977 – it is time to end hunger, once and for all.
More than 795 million people – or one in nine people in the world – do not have enough to eat. At the same time, roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption gets lost or wasted.
However, hunger is connected to so much more than food. The Hunger Project firmly believes that empowering women to act as key change agents is an essential element to achieving the end of hunger and poverty. Join us for a panel talk where we discuss how the issue of hunger is interconnected with many other aspects of development. How can we here in Sweden contribute to end world hunger? Which role does gender equality play? What kind of leadership and what approaches are needed to solve the issue of hunger?
