SCARBOROUGH resident Laura Grubb represented Australia as part of the Youth Ag-Summit in Canberra last month.
About 100 young leaders from 33 nations came together for the summit to discuss the role science and modern agriculture play in feeding a hungry planet.
Ms Grubb and Kenyan delegate Samba Ouma Zablon will present the Canberra Youth Ag-Declaration at the United Nation’s Committee on World Food Security in Rome next month.
Ms Grubb, a Murdoch University honours student, said the opportunity to present at the UN was significant.
“It’s a huge opportunity,” she said.
“Normally at conferences the information and ideas shared stay within the body of people that attended, but we have a unique opportunity to spread this around the globe to both developed and developing countries, across a range of different ecosystems, production systems, and cultures.
“That means we can really put the goals we’ve developed at this conference into practice and make a difference.”
