As Hunger and Despair Loom in Syria, a Student's Reflections on the World Humanitarian Summit

For two days, major players in the humanitarian community gathered at the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Turkey, to discuss the current state of international aid and to call for change. It didn’t receive much attention, but a major focus of the summit was the involvement of youth in humanitarian responses. While many countries sent youth delegates and the summit featured a separate youth forum, No Lost Generation at The George Washington University was the only student-run organization invited to share our work as part of an exhibition fair at the summit. I traveled to Istanbul with six other GW students to participate.

Fight Hunger & Change the World

  

 

For the second year running, students from the London School of Economics’ UN Society gave a voice to the hungry on their campus by organising a Fill the Cup Week around World Food Day.

 

On World Food Day, 204 students at the New School in Rome lined up for lunch. Instead of their regular meals, each student sat down with a plate of rice. The money they saved by eating only rice went to WFP's School Feeding Programme.
