Project background

Innovation Generation encourages the development of young farmers who are the future of the grains industry. The Liebe Group have a large number of young and innovative farmers, male and female, that are heavily involved in the groups committees and events and have a thirst for increasing their knowledge.

 

The trip was designed to promote innovative thinking among the group, and generate new research and development ideas which increases both their confidence and capacity to understand the field. In turn, this will increase the conviction of young growers to influence the industry and make a difference to their local community, as well as agriculture on a broader scale.

 

Key learning objectives for participants include:

  1. Gaining a better understanding of the agricultural industry and the supply chain in Australia.

  2. Improving their understanding of how innovative thinking can be developed into solutions for sustainability.

  3. Recognizing the importance of strategic thinking, including the fostering of innovation and progression.

  4. Improving their skills in facilitation and information capture, and give them the skills and confidence to deliver this to an audience.
