Jacob Onyschuk is very keen to participate in the conversation about how we are going to feed the world. He is a Youth Ambassador for 4-H, a youth development organization, and will be attending the Global Youth Ag-Summit entitled “Feeding a Hungry Planet", taking place in August 2013 in Alberta, Canada. He says, 'The opportunity to connect with peers, and tackle a very complex issue like this is very exciting.'
As a major sponsor of the event, we aim especially to bring different perspectives, ideas, standpoints and suggestions to the discussion. At Bayer CropScience we believe in the concept of cultivating ideas and answers.
Jacob will join 120 students from 20 countries. The students, aged between 18 and 25, will dedicate an entire week to the issue of global food supply. 'These young adults will have the chance of a lifetime to make a lasting contribution to agricultural challenges worldwide,' says Mike Nowosad, CEO of 4-H Canada.
