"Ready to act – tackling the challenges"

For 60 years, the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) has organised the "International Leadership Workshop for Rural Youth" at the Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft in Herrsching am Ammersee.

The workshop is aimed at managers and multipliers from all over the world who hold positions of responsibility in the field of youth work or vocational training in rural areas. They are role models of integrity, persuasion, boldness and coherence.

Do you want new impulses?

Develop your personal strengths, learn to use them better and develop your skills to make the most of your country's resources.

Technical topics of the workshop:

Shaping change     

  • with the help of education and counselling
  • in harmony with nature and the environment
  • in and with agriculture
  • in society and rural areas

The international dialogue of this workshop opens new perspectives in rural youth work and strengthens your leadership skills by learning implementation strategies and developing a personal action plan. The workshop requires your active collaboration. Participants must be between 21 and 45 years of age and fluent in one of the three conference languages -German, English, French.
The costs of accommodation, meals, working aids and excursions included in the program are paid by the organizer. Accommodations could be in double rooms.

Travel costs to and from the workshop must be paid by the participants themselves or by their organisations/ employers.

In a long tradition, the 30th International Seminar for Leaders in Rural Youth Work will also take place at the Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft in Herrsching. The modern and innovative education and conference centre is the central educational institution of the Bavarian Farmers' Association.

Director Gunther Strobl and his team are very pleased to host the 30th seminar in the "Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft" on behalf of the BMEL and the BLE.

The International Leadership Workshop for Rural Youth is unique, because it

  • creates space for meetings at equivalent level
  • overcomes borders and offers interaction between different actors in a protected and peaceful atmosphere and
  • overcomes political, religious and cultural barriers
