Knowledge for Young Farmers

Secretary of the International Union of Young Farmers Sergejus Ivanovas participated in the Conference "Knowledge for Young Farmers" 15-16 October 2015, Brussels

At this conference, the preliminary results of the Pilot Project "Exchange programme for young farmers", proposed by the European Parliament and supported by the European Commission, were presented. For this study, some 2,205 young farmers (max 40 years old), including members of the International Union of Young Farmers, had been interviewed. The aim of the conference was to present the needs of young farmers, provide an overview of existing exchange schemes for young farmers throughout EU 28, and also outside Europe, and launch the guide for successful exchange schemes, which has been produced as part of the study.

The conference was aimed at young farmers, policy makers, managers of exchange schemes and also representatives of EU institutions. It represented a unique opportunity for organisers of exchange programmes to learn from each other.
