Enough is enough: Undernutrition contributes to the death of 3 million children under the age of 5 years every year.
It is a scandal: 800 million people in the world still do not have enough food to lead a healthy and active life.
We believe that innovation is the key to unlock new promising ideas to combat hunger and social injustice.
Let 2019 be the change you want to see. We look for innovators like you. Let us change the world together!
Zero Hunger can be achieved by 2030 if:
Governments and the international community do significantly more to guarantee rights and essential public services for everyone. This includes specifically gender, land and labour rights as well as public services related to health, nutrition, and basic benefits for the most vulnerable groups.
Together we innovate, transfer and scale solutions that help guaranteeing such rights and improve the access, quality and accountability of public services.
Challenges to you
Challenge 1: How might we support rural women and their families to access public services that truly help them escape hunger and injustice?
Support vulnerable women improving their awareness, access and quality of services and help ensuring their rights at the local level
Improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of state services

Challenge 2: How might we support social activists and concerned citizens to become more powerful in combating hunger and injustice?
Magnify the voice of concerned citizens, social activists and their constituency to influence state policies at all levels
Provide radical and effective alternatives to existing advocacy or campaign methods
Support the influential community in developing and enforcing global standards related to hunger and injustice
