Pulses contribute to creating economic, social and environmental opportunities for sustainable agrifood systems. But for the successful adoption of a pulse-driven agriculture, young people must be at the centre of any strategy.

Youth can act as a bridge between traditional farming techniques and new technologies, helping to make agriculture more sustainable and nutrition-sensitive. They can also bring added value to the promotion of pulses by shedding light on new business opportunities along the value chain.

The celebration this year under the theme Pulses to empower youth in achieving sustainable agrifood systems will focus on the key role young people play in shaping a better future for food and bring testimonies and perspectives of youth organizations’ representatives.

CodePink is a women's grassroots-initiated, worldwide organization of women and men working for peace, social justice and a green economy. CodePink SF serves the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.










From our National Site

The national CodePink organization organizes for justice for Iraqis and to hold war criminals accountable. CodePink actively opposes the U.S. war in Afghanistan, torture, the detention center at Guantanamo, weaponized and spy drones, the prosecution of whistleblowers, U.S. support for the Israeli occupation of Palestine and repressive regimes.

Rooted in a network of local organizers, CodePink's tactics include satire, street theatre, creative visuals, civil resistance, and directly challenging powerful decision-makers in government and corporations. And, of course, wearing pink!
