This season of Living Land pays special emphasis on the “next generation” and their role in agriculture, rural development and food security throughout the region.
It is aimed at bringing the youth back into agriculture and challenge the hot topic in agriculture that the average age of farmers across the world is between 50 and 60 years old.
