8-10 October 2019 | Bali, Indonesia

Agricultural development can be slow and uneven, often not reaching the people who are most vulnerable and in pockets of deep, entrenched poverty. It is further hindered by climate change, which disproportionally affects agriculture and threatens the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) targets on food security and poverty.

Tahukah kamu mengapa banyak anak muda enggan jadi petani? Karena jadi petani di Indonesia itu miskin, bahkan sering rugi. Kenapa? Karena sistem pangan konvensional membuat petani harus menjual produknya dengan harga murah.

Konsumen juga selalu ingin membeli bahan makanan dengan harga murah. Sistem pangan konvensional tidak memberikan ruang bagi petani untuk bergerak.

Sistem pangan di Indonesia menaruh harapan besar pada orang muda. Peluang besar untuk menciptakan sistem pangan yang adil ada di tangan orang muda.

Perkembangan teknologi terutama informasi bisa mengubah sistem pangan konvensional menjadi lebih adil, bagi petani, pedagang, pemroses, dan konsumen.

Seperti apa caranya? Bagaimana orang muda bisa berperan? Yuk, hadiri acara Penganugerahan Duta Petani Muda 2018 dan ikut berdiskusi bersama dengan narasumber inspiratif.
