Since its first occasion in 2000, the 12th day of August has been observed as International Youth Day, on the initiative of the United Nations. This day is aimed at drawing critical attention to the issues that youth have to face everywhere in the world. The day resolves around a certain theme.

70% of our global food requirement comes from the 500 million family farms around the world (FAO, 2014). And yet, family farming is often associated with poverty as these farms usually operate on small scales (mainly for subsistence) and generate low revenues.
