A century ago, 4-H youth were a strong force within our country’s primary economic sector: agriculture.
Today, it’s no different—in fact, the movement has grown and gained a further reach. In recognition of 4-H as a global movement, 4-H Canada has expanded to include a focus on sustainable
agricultural practices, as well as the vital importance of food security both at home and abroad.
Young people are taking an active interest in issues affecting people worldwide. This 4-H leadership development pillar is vital to the growth of young people, and to the food we eat around the world.
Under Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security Pillar youth begin:
- Appreciating the food we eat and grow
- Learning about innovative and sustainable farming practices
- Learning new ways of improving nutrition and food security
- Exchanging ideas and solutions at home and abroad
