Media Engagement in the UN Food Systems Summit Process

UN Food Systems Summit Independent Dialogue

28 JULY 2021| 11:00 – 13:00GMT+2

With the United Nations Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) quickly approaching, the world’s food system will be a central theme in every news and media outlet. The world over, stakeholders are identifying and defining their roles, and actively participating to influence UNFSS outcomes in their favour.

What is the role of the media fraternity in the UNFSS? What is in it for communications specialists from both state and private media houses, news outlets, and social media platforms? How can the media fraternity help to improve general understanding and promote broader participation in this critical process?

To answer these and many other burning questions, join us as we unpack the role of Communications Specialists and the Media in the United Nations Food Systems Summit and related processes. The upcoming webinar will discuss and define the critical role that you as a Communications Specialist play in unpacking the UNFSS and related processes.

Please feel free to send this invitation to colleagues and contacts within the communications and media fraternity whom you feel may benefit from attending this dialogue.
