On Thursday 17th February, one of our EU projects, SmartAgriHubs, held a joint event with H2020 Demeter: ‘The Changing Face of Agriculture’. With the challenges of an ageing population and gender inequality across European agriculture, the event looked at gender, youth and digitalization within farming, starting with a session on the farmers perspective, followed by a discussion on training and support. IfA’s Fundraising Manager, Philippa Gray, was invited to speak at the event, sharing her experienced as a young female farmer in session 1. Other speakers included Diana Lenzi, the president of the European Council of Young Farmers (CEJA), who shared her thoughts on how policy and support can help ensure young farmers opinions and needs are represented. The event was attended by over 100 people, and a recording of the event can be viewed below.
