Training young farmers to become future farmers’ leaders
The WFO Gymnasium Programme is a high-level capacity building programme aimed at training young farmers to become future leaders in the agricultural sector: and also, to gain an exposure to the reality of the global negotiations on agriculture. Today’s young farmers play a critical role for the achievement of global food security, tackling climate change while improving the viability level on the farm.
During each edition of the programme which lasts for 30 months, 20 young farmers from WFO member organisations worldwide meet at least twice per year on the occasion of international conferences related to agriculture; young farmers receive lessons from international leaders who work in the various policy areas at global level.
Our CEO, Mr. Kabiito Denis was part of the first edition of the programme which started in October 2017 and ended in February 2020 with a graduation ceremony at WFO headquarters in Rome.
