From October 9-13, 2017, young leaders from around the world will gather at the Youth Ag-Summit to discuss ideas, develop a vision and deliver action. If you’re 18-25 and care about our planet’s future, you should be part of this. Send us your thoughts and we might send you to Brussels, Belgium to share them with 100 other bright young minds and leaders.
Youths (18 -25 years)
In the next 40 years, it is projected that the world population will grow from 7 to almost 10 billion. However, 1 billion people today still do not have enough safe and nutritious food to eat. Demand is rising while resources are dwindling. Solutions are strongly debated across rural, urban and international communities.
In September 2015, the world’s leaders came together to agree on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.
In the context of “Feeding a hungry planet” and using your own village, town, city or country as your point of reference, tell us on which SDGs youth can have the most impact in the next one to five years, both at a local and global level.
You should explain how working on these SDGs youth can bring real change to agricultural or food chain practices, or personal and community behaviors, that could help feed 10 billion and create a more sustainable local and global society.
