YES! We Can Improve the Food System: BCFN Young Earth Solutions (YES!) Competition

Batas waktu: 1 Juli 2013
 Usia maksimal 30 tahun.
 Trip to Milan dan  €1000.


Here’s a winning idea: A program that connects urban youth to food production by engaging them in the cultivation, preservation, cooking, and sale of local food products.

This brainchild belongs to Italian student Frederica Marra, and it won her last year’sBCFN Young Earth Solutions (YES!) competition

The Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition (BCFN) is now seeking equally winning ideas for how to improve the food system for this year’s YES! competition. Ideas should focus on reducing humanity’s environmental footprint, while also guaranteeing health and food accessibility.

BCFN aims to cultivate the next generation of food thought leaders, as well as move humanity toward a future free of hunger, obesity, undernourishment, and food waste. They challenge students and young researchers to conjure up feasible, original, and effective solutions to the predicaments of our food system.



Since this competition is for emerging leaders, only students and young researchers can enter. And you have to be under 30.



Finalists will get an all-expenses-paid trip to Milan, Italy to present their ideas at the 5th International Forum on Food and Nutrition in November, as well as the opportunity to show off their ideas on the BCFN YES! website

The brain(s) behind the winning idea will receive €1000 and a chance to participate in a BCFN research project in 2014—meaning, you could help them make some positive change
