Global 4-H Network Summit underway in Ottawa

More than 500 4-H leaders and youth from around the world are in Ottawa this week for the Global 4-H Network Summit.

Only the second time it’s been held, 4-H Canada is hosting the summit in conjunction with Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations in Ottawa. The first Global 4-H Network Summit was held in Seoul, Korea in 2014.

Hannah Plexman (Global 4-H Network Summit Event Manager), Jennifer Christie (Chair) and Liz Jarvis (4-H Canada Director, Government Relations).

Summit Chair Jennifer Christie joined us on RealAg Radio on Tuesday to highlight what will be happening during the week.

As she explains, each of the four days centres around one of four themes of 4-H: science and technology; communication and community engagement; agriculture and food security; and, environment and healthy living.

Here’s our chat about the inspiring, action-packed agenda for the four day event that’s bringing together 4-H members and alumni from around the world:
