Agriculture and food systems need to transform in ways that produce sustainable and inclusive practices and outcomes, including more and better jobs for young women and men. Promoting green jobs for and with rural youth can contribute to such a transformation, while helping address the underemployment crisis and acknowledging and further engaging youth in agriculture, food and associated sectors.
A webinar by the GDPRD Thematic Working Group on Rural Youth Employment will be held on 25 April (15.00 - 16.30 CET), to discuss the topic of Green Jobs for Rural Youth.
This webinar will provide:
- An action-oriented exchange on the promotion of “green jobs” for sustainable agriculture and food systems
- An introduction and discussion of effective approaches, data gaps, and entry points for policy intervention to support green skills and create jobs for rural youth employment
- Practical experiences from government, development partners, and youth perspectives
