The Future Young Leaders Program will identify eight emerging thought-leaders within agriculture to attend evokeAG. in Melbourne 2020 and present their key passion and research relating to one of the event themes – Food, Farm, Future – to an international audience.
Winners will receive return economy airfares, accommodation, airport transfers, a delegate pass to evokeAG. as well as a five-minute presentation opportunity across one of the multiple stages at the event.
To be considered, applicants must upload a short video addressing: “Why should you be selected as a voice of the future at evokeAG.?”
evokeAG. 2019 Future Young Leader Matthew Nevison said the Program is a fabulous opportunity to contribute new conversations to an influential audience.
“I spoke about the opportunity of Australian native species in driving alternative on-farm investment. It was a great opportunity to present my ideas to a room full of people who have the power to drive this change,” said Mr Nevison.
The University of Sydney student said the event gave him an opportunity to explore the perspectives of different industries and hear from stakeholders right through the supply chain.
“The networking was fabulous. I’m not originally from an ag background so it was great to meet an entirely new group of people and share ideas and thoughts.”
