Field visits in Flanders for Malawian farmers
Groene Kring and KULeuven invite Malawian farmers
Acades is the Malawian organization for youth in agri-business. Considering 60% of the Malawian population is under the age of 25, engaging the youth into farming is crucial for the development of the country. Acades is involved in an exchange programme with Groene Kring, the youth farmers organization of Belgium. After receiving young Belgian farmers in Malawi, a Malawian delegation visited Flanders. Within the framework of the KULeuven Newbie project field visits on new business models in farming, a panel debate and a strategic workshop were organized. The exchange programme was facilitated by the Flemish Government and Exchange vzw. On the last day all stakeholders assembled for a concluding workshop to discuss the possibilities of long-term joint partnership.
