The International Land Coalition, Landesa and Slow Food Youth Network organised a series of three webinars dedicated to youth and access to land to share good practices and experiences of innovation from all over the world.
Land access is shaping the employment and migration decisions of the rural youth. The Youth Lab is a space to share innovative experiences aimed at inspiring and informing action. The following roundtable discussions offered the opportunity for young men and women to be exposed to decision makers who have been promoting youth tailored measures, and to learn from the experiences that have made possible for the youth to root and prosper.
