Although it has been realized that challenges and setbacks are real. Sooner or later such destruction seems like will come soon.

According to climate.gov.ph, the world’s population is expected to increase by 2 billion in the next 30 years, simply producing a larger volume of healthier food will not ensure human and planetary wellbeing. Various programs are pursued by involving all groups, especially youth who have a very important role for the future. In observance of “Linggo ng Kabataan” or Youth Week in 2021, a theme of “Transforming Food System: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health” has been set.
