New Projects for 2017 : A Focus on Food, Sustainability and Hunger

To celebrate the World’s Largest Lesson in 2017 we are asking children to think about how their food choices impact the SDGs and to pledge to make changes. From healthy eating to reducing wastage, eliminating plastic packaging, sourcing closer to home and checking on the practices of food producers, children will roll up their sleeves and dig into Goals 2, 3, 13, 14, and 15. And not forgetting a call to them to fearlessly stand up for the children that are hungry right now and need our help.

"We’re in a crazy moment – we’re battling the bulge while staving off hunger. Obesity and malnutrition literally live side by side in communities, and even families, around the globe. At the same time, we’re choosing to use what precious natural resources we do have to fuel a food system that’s making us – and our planet – sick. We continue to spend our limited resources in ways that threaten our lives, and jeopardize our future generations. "
