On May 2, the World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO) hosted the GYMx, the first-ever online TED-style event featuring the students of the third edition of the WFO Gymnasium Capacity Building Program. 

GYMx is a brand-new initiative conceived under the WFO Gymnasium program to develop young farmers‘ advocacy and public speaking capacities. An expert coaching team collaborated with the students to finalize their presentations, fostering a proactive and collaborative atmosphere that carried over to the contest. 

The best speech, as voted by the students, was presented by Silvia Caprara from Giovani di Confagricoltura – ANGA. She has been rewarded with fully funded participation at the 2023 WFO General Assembly. She will attend the event from May 21 to 24 in Sun City, South Africa, addressing the Opening Ceremony on behalf of young farmers. 

 Congratulations, Silvia!
