On March 30th 2022, The Next Gen(D)eration Leadership Collective launched Achieving A Well-Nourished World: A Manifesto for Leadership. Transforming nutrition and food systems depends on transforming leadership. Solutions to poor-quality diets and inequitable, unsustainable food systems exist—what is missing is the leadership needed to put these solutions to work. Accelerating progress towards a well-nourished world is going to take courageous leadership capable of navigating complex, systemic challenges; it will mean unleashing the power of women to redefine leadership and reimagine new systems. This is our Manifesto for transforming how we lead and who leads.

Our Manifesto sets out the Courageous Leadership Practices the Next Gen(D)eration Leadership Collective is calling for and what we are building our movement around. The practices are drawn
from existing evidence and our own experiences of leadership, grounded in our daily work and lives. The eight leadership practices are as follows:
What leadership needs to do to accelerate progress towards a well-nourished world
Experience and evidence show that to create systemic change to tackle poor-quality diets and inequitable, unsustainable food systems, courageous leadership is needed at all levels to:
Change the economic and institutional imperatives that prevent commitments from being converted into action
Navigate across the diverse perspectives and conflict inherent in complex systems
Tackle power hierarchies and dynamics holding back transformative ideas and innovations
Address fragmented governance and siloed ways of working that get in the way of aligning solutions for collective impact.
