The future Is now: How to unlock young farmers’ potential for a sustainable future of food systems

About the event

Youth have a tremendous impact on ensuring that food and agriculture are part of the conversations. Young people, including young farmers, are challenging us to leap into more sustainable, climate-resilient, nature-positive practices. This event explores how youth is working and can be empowered to catalyze their potential for climate action.
