Bayer will be funding three future projects developed by young food security advocates that focus on United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of Gender Equality, Quality Education, and Responsible Consumption and Production. The three projects were presented during the 2017 Youth Ag-Summit in Brussels and won the funding prizes of EUR 3,000, EUR 5,000, and EUR 10,000 respectively. Third place went to “Imperfect Picks” that aims to enable a broader cultural shift towards accepting food that appears blemished but is still of good quality. Second place went to “Seeds of Change” that will promote agriculture in schools through young agricultural champions, in order to bridge the disconnect between people who consume, and people who produce food. The first place was awarded to the group “AGRIKUA” whose project focuses on promoting Gender Equality (SDG 5) in the agricultural sector.
