What role can young people play in helping shape a ‘Good Food Nation’ within Scotland?
That was the key focus when Slow Food Youth Network Scotland hosted a panel discussion with a selection of young food entrepreneurs, producers and future food leaders during the Edinburgh Food Festival. We heard inspiring stories about their work with food, and joined in a discussion as to what we all can do to help secure a better food future in Scotland and around the world.
Innovative ideas, seizing opportunities and collaborating with others were key themes of the discussion along with a focus on how eye-catching, creative social media & communications can be the key to success for engaging young people in your business, organisation or campaign.
This event was free to attend and open to all.
