2022 Laureate Letter Toolkit

2022 Laureate Letter Toolkit

More than 25 World Food Prize Laureates are calling for the G7 to take urgent action on COVID-19, climate change, conflict and global  hunger – help us spread the word!

COVID-19, climate change and conflict have begun to turn back the  clock on this progress towards ending hunger. Leveraging food systems  can help resolve these issues. The Laureates’ open letter is published ahead of the preparatory meetings of the G7 Agriculture Ministers (13-14  May) and G7 Foreign Ministers (12-14 May).
  
This social media toolkit contains sample Twitter, FacebookInstagram and LinkedIn posts which can be copied or adapted to  promote the open letter.
