A delegation of the Young DLG took part in a virtual exchange with the Thai youth organisation of Young Smart Farmers on 11 October. Representatives from Germany and Thailand were involved in the conversation and after a short round of introductions, there were already technical discussions about challenges in the respective production systems. For example, there are similar challenges in the elimination of certain inputs (e.g. glyphosate) and an increasing greening of agriculture. What is exciting here is the different perspectives on common challenges and the application in the different crops.
DLG International GmbH is organising the Agritechnica Asia Regional Summit / Horti Asia Regional Summit on 16/17 November with the theme "Smartproduction for sustainable food systems". The aim is to provide a forum for international exchange between youth organisations and to jointly host a forum at the digital event. The forum is to be planned under the title "On the way to organic agriculture?" and will enable an intensive exchange between the participants.
We hope that this exchange can be intensified and consolidated for the future and that valuable insights can be gained here in the international exchange and the network of the Young DLG can be expanded.
