Around the globe young people have wonderful ideas how to protect our environment, how to reduce pollution and how to produce sufficient food to feed everybody – to end child hunger, to provide mothers with sufficient food for their families.
This initiative addresses and challenges especially students in Food Science and related areas to demonstrate and visualize their ideas and the potentials of their ideas in short videos.
