Call for Young African Agrifood Changemakers 2022



About the Opportunity:

Are you a community organizer or a policy advocate who is creating inclusive space for people to access sufficient, healthy food?

The World Food Forum (WFF) Africa team is calling for nomination of young African changemakers who are striving to make our agrifood systems fairer and more sustainable and who can share their strong visions, recount their actions and inspire others to follow.
