Every two years, 100 young global leaders aged 18-25 are brought together to network, share experiences, gain new skills, and develop food security-focused projects.
The end goal?
To equip young people to take concrete action on one of humanity’s most pressing challenges: how to feed a hungry planet.
The fourth edition of the Youth Ag Summit will be held in Brasilia, Brazil, between November 4 and 6 2019.
Who can apply
The Summit is open to applications from young people aged 18-25, who are passionate about food, agriculture, food security, environmental stewardship, world hunger, biotechnology, farming, or caring for farm animals.
However, applicants do not have to be farmers – previous Summit participants have included lawyers, doctors, teachers, and business management students!
Applications from current students, as well as young people already working in a relevant field, are welcome.
How can I apply
To apply, eligible candidates need to submit an idea for a ‘Thrive for Change’ project that addresses food insecurity in the context of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which aim to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.
