As part of the growing Food Tank Exclusive Webinar Series, Courtney Paisley, Director of the Young Professionals for Agricultural Development (YPARD), will give a presentation on “Youth in Agriculture.” The event will take place December 10 from 10am to 11am EST.
“Young professionals need to be engaged in shaping the future of agriculture,” says Paisley. “The first step in attracting future young professionals is nurturing the ones we have now. Furthermore, we need to provide more young role models for future agriculturalists to look up to and so change their perceptions of agriculture.”
Paisley will give a 30 minute presentation on the role of youth in food and agriculture, followed by a 10 to 15 minute question-and-answer session. Register early, as space is limited.
