World Pulses Day, 10 February Virtual Event
Pulses contribute to creating economic, social and environmental opportunities for sustainable agrifood systems. But for the successful adoption of a pulse-driven agriculture, young people must be at the centre of any strategy.
Youth can act as a bridge between traditional farming techniques and new technologies, helping to make agriculture more sustainable and nutrition-sensitive. They can also bring added value to the promotion of pulses by shedding light on new business opportunities along the value chain.
The celebration this year under the theme Pulses to empower youth in achieving sustainable agrifood systems will focus on the key role young people play in shaping a better future for food and bring testimonies and perspectives of youth organizations’ representatives.
