Haleh Moravej: Youth Led Food Future

"A youth led future is exciting because the focus will be on a sustainable diet that's nutritious, that is seasonal, that is affordable, that is grown locally. But it will not happen over night because young people need the training, the support, the funding, the locations and the policy makers ear"

Haleh Moravej is a multi-award winning Senior Lecturer at the Department of Health and Education, Manchester Metropolitan University. She is founder of MetMUnch, a student led social enterprise focussing on nutrition, wellbeing & sustainability. Her work includes supporting the European network Food Wave which aims to empower urban youth for climate action in Manchester. In this video, she makes the case for young people having a greater say in how we produce and consume food.
