Bayer CropScience Invites Young Americans to the Table to Help Solve the Issue of Feeding a Hungry Planet
Date:1/29/2013

Research Triangle Park, N.C. (PRWEB) January 29, 2013

Bayer CropScience invites young Americans to join youth from around the world to ‘come to the table’ from August 19 to 25 for the global Youth Ag-Summit in Calgary. At this week-long event, participants, including business leaders and scientists, in addition to the youth, will share ideas and develop a plan of action on how to feed, nourish and clothe a growing planet.

In November 2011, the United Nations announced the planet’s population surpassed seven billion people, and in less than 40 years, it is forecasted there will be two billion more mouths in need of healthy food and nutrition.

Through February 15, Americans between the ages of 18 and 25 can submit an application for a chance to attend the summit by writing a 2,000-word essay or taping a seven-minute video about the challenges of feeding a hungry planet. Twenty U.S. applicants will be selected by a panel of judges to receive an expense paid trip to the global Youth Ag-Summit. For a copy of the essay question, submission format and eligibility requirements, please download the full application guidelines.

As the title sponsor of the Youth Ag-Summit, Bayer CropScience is committed to inspiring youth from around the world to see how they can make a difference and bring agriculture to the forefront of this global challenge. Countries currently involved include: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Chile, China, Finland, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, United Kingdom and the U.S.
