Reading Time: < 1 minute

4-H Canada and Bayer CropScience have posted a new video that highlights the global 4-H Youth Ag-Summit held in Calgary last August.

As part of 4-H Canada’s 100th anniversary celebrations, 118 young delegates from 18 to 25 gathered from 24 different countries to discuss how their generation can overcome the challenges of feeding a growing world population of over seven billion people.

4-H members discussed the theme of “Feeding a Hungry Planet” and tackled topics such as food waste, climate change, the growing human footprint, consumer awareness of agricultural practices and farming efficiencies.

The final vision reached by attendees was “to increase sustainable access to nutrient-dense food for women and children worldwide to alleviate global hunger.”

“We were very proud to have had the global network to help facilitate bringing these bright minds to Canada,” Kamel Beliazi, president and CEO of Bayer CropScience said in a release. “We need new and fresh thinking to solve these problems — the future relies on these young minds.”
