Food Wave is a project coordinated by the City of Milan in partnership with 16 local authorities and 13 civil society organizations from 16 European countries and one Latin American country. The project aims to increase the knowledge, awareness and commitment of young people (15 million people aged between 15 and 35) on sustainable food practices, both for its production and consumption, that can help mitigate the effects of climate change.
We approach this theme through youth activism and youth influencers, and the involvement of youth gathering places across the city through all communication tools (street art, music, film production, etc).
