The Food and Climate Nexus



Date & Time

September 24, 2021
12:00PM EDT - 1:00PM EDT

Hosted by the United Nations Foundation

When we all understand the facts of climate change, we can work together to find the best solutions. 2021 is a pivotal year to turn the tide on climate change, as major UN negotiations will determine the next decade of international climate policy. For the solutions determined at these negotiations to be successful, they must be grounded in the best climate science.

Say It With Science: The Food and Climate Nexus will provide an insider’s breakdown of the 2021 Food Systems Summit, which is set to take place alongside the upcoming 76th UN General Assembly. More than one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions can be traced back to how we produce, process, and use food. To reverse this impact—and still account for how necessary access to healthy food is for all—we must come together, right now, to rework our global food systems. From the farmer to the chef and the producer to the consumer, join us at this next Say It With Science virtual event to learn the facts behind food and climate change and to determine your role in reversing our current course.

This event is hosted by the United Nations Foundation and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), with VICE and Facebook’s Climate Science Information Center as media hosts.
