By Youth Ag-Summit
The Youth Ag-Summit is a global bi-annual conference designed to inspire and connect the next generation of young leaders in agriculture and related disciplines. In October 2017, 100 young leaders aged 18 to 25 met in Brussels, Belgium, to create an open dialogue on one of the world’s biggest challenges: how to feed a growing population in a sustainable manner. The next edition of the Youth Ag-Summit will be held in Brazil in 2019.
