Indigenous Youth, Drivers of Innovation

Torino-Lingotto Fiere

Indigenous youngsters play a key role in consolidating the handing down of traditional knowledge from generation to generation as a linchpin of their cultural identity.

Their spiritual conceptions are closely linked to agriculture, food, land and the community, and in this context they are a source of solutions for the problems of today and for future challenges that will put sustainable agriculture and food systems at risk. By developing their skills and empowering their traditional knowledge and decision-making capacities, indigenous youth can be drivers and promoters of innovative projects.
