Lisanne Van Oosterhoud: Lisanne strives for a fair, more sustainable, affordable, and healthy food system for everyone and believes that food systems contain all the elements to bring positive and durable change to our climate, nature, and societies.  She also believes that the youth's perspective and mindset can help to ignite this change.

After a Bachelor's in Molecular Biology and a Master's in Biomedical Sciences, Lisanne soon started to focus more on topics related to food system transformation and food initiatives. In her work at FME, the association for Dutch Technology, she actively manages projects related to the connection of agrifood systems and technology. 

She was actively involved in different projects related to youth participation in food systems and was part of a food policy council in her city. As a World Food Forum Youth Champion, she is also working on the first World Food Forum local chapter in The Netherlands together with other youth organizations.
