8th-10th June: conference: The future of agriculture, youth in agriculture and local economy
EFA and EFA Youth, together with Union Démocratique Bretonne (UDB) and UDB Jeunes, will be hosting a series of roundtables and conferences on the future of agriculture.
The way to feed humanity is one of the biggest concerns that our generation and the future generations will have to face. Population increase, a declining quality of produce, the precarious nature of agricultural work, and environmental problems, are all serious factors to consider. Our response so far at local and international level has up to now been far from adequate.
What has caused this situation globally? Our aim is to discuss the future of agriculture. What forms of agriculture can we promote for future generations? How can we properly feed the global population whilst still respecting the environment?
