About 120 youth delegates from 20 countries discussed how to feed the world’s growing population at a week-long global Youth Ag-Summit held in Calgary, Canada. The summit, the first event of its kind, was organized by the Canadian Youth Organisation 4-H and sponsored by Bayer CropScience. The participants experienced an intense debate on how to increase consumer awareness of agriculture, reduce food waste, counter the effects of climate change and cope with a growing human footprint.
“Young people committed to agriculture are our future. They deserve our recognition and support,” said Liam Condon, CEO of Bayer CropScience. “With our contribution, we want to help the next generation get a good start in an industry that is faced with huge challenges caused by a continuously growing world population.”
