Grow Food, Not Tobacco - 2023 World No Tobacco Day

Updated: Aug 30, 2023

May 31 is World No Tobacco Day. This year, we have partnered with the World Health Organization to call for the end of tobacco farming across the world. As stated by our youth advocates across the world, tobacco farming depletes resources and exploits child labor. We call on all governments to grow food, not tobacco. Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus recognized and shared our campaign, stating, "The youth have spoken: 'Grow food, Not Tobacco - I hope world leaders take their #No Tobacco request seriously." (see image below).




The director general of the World Health Organization has shared IYTC's campaign.
