Rural Youth and Young Farmers Workshop - 22-25 Oct. 2015 – The Netherlands

Forum Synergies will organise, in collaboration with the Future Farmers Movement, a Rural Youth & Young Farmers Workshop from 22 to 25 October 2015 in beautiful countryside of the Netherlands!

Participation of an active youth force in rural economies and local development is usually limited by:

· Lack of preconditions and preparatory actions for return of youth to rural areas

· Difficulty to get access to land & finance, both for youth and for young farmers

· Low level of quality vocational and non vocational education in rural areas

· Lack of appropriate support for youth and young farmers’ activities in rural areas

Youth including young farmers in rural Europe face these and other challenges, for which there is few motivation to talk about and act for. But here we are ready to broaden the discussions, tackle issues and find common solutions, inspired by Rural Youth initiatives and Young Farmers initiatives around Europe!

Draft Programme:

· Thursday 22nd – Arrival and registration of participants

· Friday 23rd – Meet more people, learn new things: Exchange with the European network on Farm Succession. Discovering the place and participants initiatives (Field trips and Market of initiatives)

· Saturday 24th – Vision and needs, analyzing success stories (Working groups etc..)

. Sunday 25th – Conclusions and departure

Registration is now open till September 20th !

Register on our on-line form.
