End poverty, protect the planet, ensure prosperity for all? Food is the answer


Media and information have a major role to play in increasing the awareness and knowledge on the SDGs and promote their incorporation in development reporting for social change, challenging the narrative about progress in the developing countries and shining the spotlight to the people who are often left out of the conversation.

The BCFN panel aims at providing journalists and journalism students with information, tools and strategies to understand the complex issues surrounding the SDGs through the lens of sustainable food systems, agriculture, nutrition and climate change.

The event will also be the occasion to discuss together for a greater and effective engagement of journalists, media professionals and the general public on the implementation of the SDGs.
