This speaker series aims to identify and educate young entrepreneurs from different backgrounds and countries to become hunger fighters and establish a truly global network of young farmers, agribusiness entrepreneurs, leaders, and innovators.
It will also actively support young entrepreneurs in the implementation of projects aimed at developing their local communities through self-sustaining socio- economic and cultural opportunities based on practical success stories that can guarantee a decent life for the next generation and feed their families.
The panelists consist of advocates from governments, corporations, non-profit organizations, international development agencies, humanitarian relief agencies and policy makers with extensive knowledge and experience on how to effectively fight hunger and provide long-term food security through youth entrepreneurship, agribusiness, employment, and innovation.
