Details

Fully Funded Youth Ag Summit 2019 in Brazil from November 4th to 6th 2019 in Brasilia, Brazil. The application period will run from 17 September 2018 until 10 January 2019. 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 aged 18 to 25, for networking, debates, skills training, and project development. The end goal? To equip young people to take concrete action on one of humanity’s most pressing problems: how to feed a hungry planet.

Theme:

The Youth Ag Summit theme is Feeding a Hungry Planet.

The world’s population is expected to reach almost 10 billion by 2050. To feed everyone, we need to produce 50% more food with less land and fewer resources. Cutting-edge farming practices can help, but many people are wary and misinformed when it comes to modern agriculture. We need to bridge the disconnect between those who produce our food and those who consume it.

Benefits

  • The costs for attending the Summit are covered by the Youth Ag Summit organizers.
  • These include: flights, transportation, accommodation, and catering during the event. Any other travel costs unrelated to Youth Ag Summit activities will not be covered by the organizers.

Eligibility

  • Open to young people aged 18 to 25 with a passion for agriculture, food security, environmental stewardship, world hunger, biotechnology, farming, or animal husbandry;
  • Applicants do not have to be farmers – previous Summit participants have included lawyers, doctors, teachers, and business management students!
  • They welcome applications from current students, as well as young people already working in a relevant field, who would like to plant a path towards ending hunger and global food insecurity.
  • They are looking for people who are engaged with the Sustainable Development Goals, ready to share their views on how to feed a hungry planet, and passionate about making a difference.
