Strengthening these systems is key to achieving a #ZeroHunger world.

Ready for the bin? Actually, no! Under the black peel, you’ll likely find a ripe banana 🍌 that is fine to eat! Peel before you throw! 

Let’s respect our food.

When you see a bee what do you think of? 🐝🐝

Sting?
Insect?
Buzzing?
Honey?

But do you think of #food? Without #bees and pollination much of our food wouldn't exist

The knowledge and practices of farmers and food producers from all over the world are at the core of #agroecology. 

We need to recognize the value and knowledge of the people who produce our food.

#DYK soils host a 1/4 of our planet's #biodiversity? Yet, soil pollution puts this at risk.
 
It starts by reducing #soils’ biodiversity, which weakens the soil structure and its ability to resist erosion.

We need to protect our soils!

The degradation of the 🌎's soils has released about 78 billion tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere!

Yet, healthy #soils are one of our biggest allies against climate change! We need to protect the ground beneath our feet.
