Becoming a young farmer in the digital age: case studies on European islands

The purpose of the webinar meeting is twofold. First, presentation of carried activities during my 3
weeks Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM) in the Azores Island, as well as at University Institute of
Lisbon. This first part of the presentation aims to give insights on the organization of STSM activities
that may be inspiring for the future STSM applicants. Second, presentation of primary results of STSM
scientific study “Becoming a young farmer in the digital age: case studies on European islands”. The
second part of the presentations has an objective to give primary findings of face to face interviews with
young farmers (< 40 years old) and experts from the Azores in order to answer the main research
question of “What are the specific mechanisms through which youth in late modernity can be most
effectively engaged with the agriculture system, not only as civic engagement, but also with farming as
a “career option»?.
