Organic Pakistan and SZABIST – Media Sciences, Islamabad, have entered a strategic collaboration to improve understanding and communication on food security and agriculture in Pakistan. This partnership engages youth, students, industry leaders, and public policy professionals in tackling critical food security challenges.

This effort aims to foster critical thinking and research on topics such as food security, climate change, and smart agriculture.

Specialized workshops will be organized for industry leaders and public policy professionals, focusing on effective communication of Pakistan’s agricultural profile, challenges, and opportunities through public seminars, media platforms, and international forums. These workshops will equip participants with the skills needed to advocate for and address agricultural issues.

To engage youth, students will be motivated to produce vlogs on food and nutrition, promoting healthy lifestyle choices and improving productivity. This initiative provides an opportunity for students to use multimedia tools to raise awareness about the importance of nutrition and food security.

Additionally, food security-themed greeting cards with plant seeds will be designed and disseminated. These cards, provided by SZABIST – Media Sciences and funded by Organic Pakistan, will raise public awareness about food security issues.

The partnership will also host seminars and conferences to discuss the communication of food security challenges in Pakistan. These events will bring together experts, stakeholders, and the general public to explore solutions and strategies for improving food security communication.
