EGE Panel: Emerging Agriculture Pathways Panel
#educatingforagreeneconomy #careerconnectedlearning #STEMjobs
Join us for a lunch panel with Q & A concerning current and emerging career pathways and potential challenges for the agriculture sector in the evolving green economy.
Innovations in agriculture machinery transformed food production in the last century, but with implementation of digital “agtech” and “precision agriculture” Washington State is headed rapidly into the next agriculture economy transformation. With six of Washington’s top ten exports coming from agriculture, if prepared Washington State is positioned well for emerging careers resulting from innovation in the agriculture sector—What Happens When Farming Goes High Tech. How do we effectively connect youth to careers in this field?
This is part of a continuing series of Educating for a Green Economy conversations that the Pacific Education Institute and E3 Washington are hosting across Washington State, in conjunction with the Governor’s Office through Employment Security Department funding.
