Syngenta Canada and 4-H Canada renew partnership
The new partnership builds on a long history of collaboration between the two organizations, ensures continued support for existing programs and the development of new ones, in support of 4-H Canada’s work to help youth develop into skilled, engaged, and responsible leaders who are passionate about making meaningful contributions in the world around them.
In July, Syngenta Canada participated in the Global 4-H Network Summit hosted by 4-H Canada in Ottawa, Ontario, where sustainable agriculture and food security was among the topics explored.
“The extension of our partnership with Syngenta Canada is a testament to our successful working relationship. I am pleased to continue our work together as we both take an active role in support of youth taking an active and engaged role within their communities and their environment,” said Shannon Benner, 4-H Canada CEO. “Through our partnership, Syngenta has and continues to show their commitment to fostering the value of youth leadership.”
In addition to support for existing programs and activities, the partnership between 4-H Canada and Syngenta Canada will also support the development of new programs, including the creation of a new soil health campaign. “Soil is the foundation of life on earth. But it’s also at risk from several different threats,” Chris Davison, Head of Corporate Affairs with Syngenta Canada, says. 4-H Canada is developing a new soil health curriculum to be shared through the new global knowledge sharing platform, 4-H LEARNS, providing more than 7,600 volunteer leaders in Canada, and countless more around the world, with the resources and tools needed to engage and empower youth on this and other topics.
“Sustainable agriculture and food security are, at their heart, about finding better ways to feed the world. Productivity gains, while a critically important part of this, are not enough. They must be part of a broader, holistic approach,” says Davison, “and our renewed partnership with 4-H Canada reflects this fact and the role youth can play in helping to address this challenge.”
