Hunger kills – there are more hunger-related deaths each year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculous combined. Hunger discriminates – more than 60% of the world’s hungry are women and girls. Hunger targets children – approximately 1 million children die each year from hunger-related causes. Finally, hunger is pervasive, 1 in 8 people in the world do not get enough food to eat.
Over the next three months, Crowd 360 will curate content from live events, partners and global news to spotlight challenges and successes towards ending hunger and fighting famine. We need your help to engage and activate a digital community dedicated to #ZeroHunger through collaboration, innovation and sharing stories of success.
The #ZeroHunger Campaign starts in July and will culminate at UN General Assembly in New York City in September 2017. Each month we will address the following themes:
We need you to share what you watch, read and write about hunger and food security (blogs, videos, infographics, and more). You can submit your content here. We will send out a monthly email with a recap of the best content, and social media action request. Throughout the campaign, you’ll be able to read the latest and follow the conversation online on Twitter @crowd_360 and the Crowd 360 Facebook page.
Together we will share ways to combat famine and end world hunger.
