2015 Global Youth Ag-Summit And Essay Competition

2015 Global Youth Ag-Summit And Essay Competition

By 2050, there will be 9 billion hungry people in the world and less farmland and resources than there’s ever been. The solutions are keenly debated both in rural and urban society. We believe there is a need for young leaders to be engaged in finding sustainable agricultural solutions to the growing global need for safe, nutritious food.

On August 24-28, 2015, young leaders from around the world will gather at the Global 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 Canberra, Australia to share them with 100 other bright young minds and leaders.

Topic

What’s your vision on how to feed a growing world population?

Using your own village, town, city or country as your point of reference, tell us what you think are the underlying causes of food insecurity, and the effect it can have on a population, both at a local and global level.

Based on this, explain what changes to agricultural or food chain practices, or personal and community behaviors could help solve these issues to create a more sustainable local and global society.

Comments

  1. For the youth ag_summit and essay competiton, Nigeria isn’t part of the listed countries or maybe my eyes skipped that part, please help cross-check.

    • The organizers say in their FAQs:

      If your country is not listed as eligible, we are unfortunately not able to support you when you return to your community post-Summit.

      …meaning you can still apply and be chosen for the Summit.
