Youth Ag Summit: Empowering the Next Generation

·1 min read

Northampton, MA --News Direct-- Bayer

Today, our planet faces the challenge of using fewer natural resources while feeding a growing population — predicted to reach almost 10 billion by 2050. The day-to-day realities of farming, agricultural production, and food consumption call for new kinds of innovation. Innovations that can transform today’s challenges into tomorrow’s breakthroughs.

We believe that, as the agricultural leaders of tomorrow, young people should be at the forefront of these efforts. The Youth Ag Summit is their platform.

A platform for change

The Youth Ag Summit is a unique opportunity to connect and empower the next generation of agricultural change-makers. Every two years, we bring together 100 global young leaders for networking, debates, skills training, and project development. The end goal? To equip them to take concrete action on one of humanity’s most pressing problems: how to feed a hungry planet while using fewer natural resources. The first Youth Ag Summit took place in Calgary, Canada, in 2013, followed by Canberra, Australia, in 2015, Brussels, Belgium, in 2017, and Brasilia, Brazil, in 2019.
