WFF has been conducting research, workshops, and a variety of activities to promote action, especially by young people, to solve social issues related to food on a global level since its launch in 2019,

WFF2021, which will be held online from October 2, has four themes: "Better Production," "Better Nutrition," "Better Life," and "Better Environment. Looking at the entire value chain from food production to the dinner table, WFF2021 aims to form a community of startups, NPOs, academia, and public institutions that can contribute to each area.
