Stellenbosch Business School Events

According to South Africa’s National Development Plan (NDP), the agricultural sector needs to create 1 000 000 jobs by 2030. However, current employment within the agricultural sector is below 900 000 jobs and employment growth within the agricultural sector remains stagnant.

There is a need to be informed of the potential scale of these disruptions while establishing new opportunities – taken from a recently published report on the Futures of Employment in Agriculture 2035. Herein lies both risks and opportunities for the youth of today.

Book now to join this special Leader’s Angle event as we unpack alternative futures for youth in the agricultural sector.
