The Youth Ag Summit is open to applications from young people aged 18-25
Application Deadline: 30th June 2021
About the Award: 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 for networking, debates, skills training, and project development. The end goal? To equip them to take concrete action on one of humanity’s most pressing problems: how to feed a hungry planet while using fewer natural resources. The first Youth Ag Summit took place in Calgary, Canada, in 2013, followed by Canberra, Australia, in 2015, Brussels, Belgium, in 2017, and Brasilia, Brazil, in 2019.
Eligibility: The Youth Ag Summit is open to applications from young people aged 18-25, who are passionate about agriculture, food security, environmental stewardship, world hunger, biotechnology, farming, or animal husbandry. Applicants are not required to be farmers – previous delegates have included lawyers, doctors, teachers, and business management students.
Eligible Countries: Any
To be Taken at (Country): Online
Number of Awards: 100
Value of Award: We look for participants who are true “agvocates” (advocates for agriculture) and who have an innovative project idea about how to solve future food security challenges. During YAS you will be supported on your journey to turn this idea into real action!
Duration of Award: The Youth Ag Summit (YAS) takes place every two years. YAS 2021 will take place digitally on November 16-17 followed by a ten-week virtual incubator called “YAS University” from January to March in 2022.
