FAO: World Food Day Poster Contest 2023

If you’re aged between 5 and 19, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations wants to hear from you! Use your imagination and create a poster showing a world where no one is left behind, and everyone has access to healthy and affordable food.

Children’s Activity Books
Read the two new activity books for youth, inspiring them to learn how to play an active role in building a sustainable world. 

"Water is life, water is food" explores the ways this precious natural resource is important for food and for all of nature.  Global challenges such as a growing population, global warming and an increase in the production of goods and services threaten our water supply. If we wish to safeguard water reserves, we must begin with farming and the food system as a whole. This is an ideal learning exercise to prepare young minds for the Poster Contest. 

Embark on an inspiring adventure to a coastal fishing community in the book "Climate action. Maria's story," where children can discover practical ways to make a difference in our changing climate. This captivating story is designed to engage even young readers, aged 5 and above, with adult support recommended for enhanced reading comprehension.
