The Zimbabwe Farmers Union (ZFU) organized Youth Summit was held to primarily discuss the myriad of challenges and solutions that can help "break the barriers" that inhibit youths to realize their full potential in agriculture. Prominent scholars and key stakeholders were invited to interact with the youths while sharing their experiences. Importantly, the summit was also meant to listen to the issues that youths were raising.
The goal of the summit was to generate and connect ideas aimed at progressing agriculture in Zimbabwe with the next generation of young people. This is a step towards encouraging youths to take charge and be responsible for their future and the community around them.
This platform shall be the first step to 'breaking the barriers' for Young Farmers in Zimbabwe
