    Youth in Nature: The Future of Sustainable Agriculture
    Rigas, Dina (2021-11-01)
    This film discusses how the growing disconnect of humans (specifically youth) from nature can prove detrimental to the future of sustainable agriculture. Programs such as Primitive Pursuits and the Learning Farm among numerous others today are taking on the task of getting youth "back to the woods" and contributing to a more secure future of sustainable agriculture. While individuals in the field of agriculture and science today can make significant impact in strides to move towards the main goals of sustainable agriculture, our success will be largely determined by the continued efforts of future generations and therefore our efforts to cultivate interest, education and personal valuation of this topic in youth today.
