Again this year, on 10 February, the WFO International Secretariat welcomed in its premises in Rome 20 young farmers all coming from different parts of Germany and taking part in the 2022 TOP Kurs programme, managed by the WFO partner Andreas Hermes Akademie (AHA).

The meeting exposed the attendees to the reality of what WFO is, what it does, and how it works, particularly its advocacy action and its member-driven policy development process.

WFO recognises and promotes the importance of capacity building actions for young farmers and is pleased to collaborate with higher education institutions, such as AHA, to provide them with forward-looking and constructive exchange opportunities.
