The Hunger Project and IFPRI would like to invite you to this youth-led event that will feature a multigenerational dialogue about the urgent challenges in expanding opportunities in agriculture for today's youth, with questions put to high-level experts. What are the best practices that will foster youth buy-in to agriculture? How is globalized communication affecting youth goals? Can youth leadership and cross-sectoral partnerships be strengthened to build resilient food systems? The growing youth population, falling interest in farming, and potential impacts of climate change on food security make it imperative that agricultural markets and value chains be expanded with youth.
