Meat Business Women to hold Global Dialogue in Preparation for the United Nations Food Systems Summit
About this Event
Meat Business Women and their work in attracting and retaining the number of women working in the global meat sector has been identified as a solution to their Sustainable Development Goals.
Join us to engage with women working in this space, including keynote speaker – UK Chief Veterinary Officer, Defra, Christine Middlemiss – and to workshop solutions that feed directly into the United Nations Food Systems Summit dialogue.
We’ll explore how gender equality can deliver a more sustainable meat industry. Who needs to be involved and what actions need to be taken to ensure the involvement and empowerment of women working in the sector? And, what impact could gender equality have directly on the Action Tracks (specifically action track 2 &4) identified within the UNFSS?
About the UN Food Systems Summit (source: UN): In September 2021, UN Secretary-General António Guterres will convene a Food Systems Summit that will launch new actions to deliver progress on all 17 SDGs, each of which relies to some degree on healthier, more sustainable and equitable food systems. The Summit will awaken the world to the fact that we all must work together to transform the way the world produces, consumes and thinks about food. It is a summit for everyone everywhere – a people’s summit. It is also a solutions summit that will require everyone to take action to transform the world’s food systems. Independent Summit Dialogues are both an important avenue for citizen engagement and a key part of the Summit process. For more information, visit https://www.un.org/en/food-systems-summit.
