Among the activities organized under the project BOND, an international meeting of young European farmers will take place in Spring 2020! The European and pan-European Forum Young Farmers for the Future! will gather together 34 young farmers and land managers (half female and half male) from 34 European countries in Hosman village, Romania between the 16th and the 17th of April.
See, learn and tell. It will be an occasion for the new generation of farmers to share visions, express needs and aspirations and provide youth-powered recommendations and solutions to policymakers in Europe. It will bring together different international ideas on the future of farming and collect practical suggestions, fostering collective action, participation and network building.
The crucial topics under debate will be sustainable farming, agroecology, food sovereignty, market access and access to land and natural resources.
The outcomes expected are youth bonding, engagement strengthening, networks creation, participation in the European policy making process, further practical and theoretical skills-sharing activities and consequent national dissemination. In short, participants will have the opportunity to gather and address EU policy makers with proposals for the future of a youth-inclusive agriculture!
