What Can Pope Francis Tell You About Agriculture & Justice?

Speaker's Corner

Given numerous injustices present in the various sectors of the global economy and a pressing need to understand, as well as address those injustices Pope Francis has convened over 2500 youth and invited those to act in this regard under the Economy of Francesco initiative.

Agriculture does play a prominent role in the Economy of Francesco initiative and the youth from across the world are working in this work stream. In our side event, we would like to share the insights on various injustices and challenges faced by farmers, in particular smallholder, young and women farmers, across the world with the goal of inviting key policymakers to address those challenges with Pope Francis and the youth he has gathered around himself.
