Food Wave

Food Wave is a European partnership that connects young people to take action for the climate. Food Wave has the aim to create awareness on sustainable ways to consume and produce food for climate change mitigation and to engage young people to involve their communities and to influence institutional decisions, so they can lead us to a sustainable global food system by 2030. The project is co-funded by the EU and promoted by the Municipality of Milan together with ActionAid Italia, ACRA, Mani Tese and 25 project partners in 17 countries.

About the speakers

Yanna Hoek

In everything she does, she tries to get to the core. Through associative thinking and imaginative power, she connects various subjects and tries to give it a personal touch. Her mission is to search for opportunities in the complicated climate movement. Her strategy? Make the solutions visible and understandable, while connecting the needed individuals. With her work at the Young Innovators Program and as co-founder of Broodje Poep, she invites people to think about different ways of impact.

Iona Mulder

Iona Mulder started The Good Spice after her partner brought a piece of cinnamon from Hong Kong, which was tastier than every other cinnamon stick she has ever had before. That was the start for a fascination for (the trade of) spices. The Good Spice sources high quality and sustainable spices within a short supply chain, that will be sold under the farmer’s own brand. The Good Spice tries to stimulate farmers to improve their production methodes by offering higher prices on the basis of sustainability and quality.
