Young people will be a critical part of our future and of delivering the deep change that our world requires. We know that this period in life is crucial to inspire leadership, entrepreneurial mindset, and vocational possibilities. EIT Food Youth Mission will identify and test promising education practices, and support learning practices aligned with today’s expectations for the education of all pupils.
The overarching objective of the Career Days (CDs) is to raise awareness of the significance of food in modern life, and to demonstrate their relevance to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The concrete aims of CD are as follow:
- Raise awareness of the potential of food and its importance in our everyday lives.
- Inspire and encourage young people to study a food-related discipline, bringing much needed human capital into the food system.
- Promote the knowledge, skills, and attitudes in demand in the agri-food sector.
- Showcase the exciting and meaningful opportunities in industries pioneering innovation in the sector. These range from careers in industry, further research at universities and research & training organisations, as well as creating start-ups and the corresponding EIT Food support and opportunities for young entrepreneurs.
