Time for agriculture to deal with the impact of the “Haters”

There is no-one I have met who exemplifies courage more that Emma Ayliffe and as the person who nominated Emma Ayliffe for Australian Young Farmer of the Year,  I found reading this interview so hard.

When the first thing a young person like Emma has to think about is how to manage the “haters” you wonder is the sector you have invested your life’s work into worth the effort.

I know too well how my son and my former husband struggled with dealing with the “haters”.

I know too well what you must lose when you put yourself out there to change the conversations around agriculture.

If there is anything agriculture needs to change it’s how they celebrate people doing it differently.

The world needs creative, innovative and courageous young people who can connect, collaborate and act. We know that youth may only be 20% of the population but they are 100% of the future. The time is now to let them share their dreams and design the future they want to see.
