In late April 2017, Germany’s Federal Development Ministry (BMZ) invited around 600 guests from 45 countries to the G20 Conference “One World – No Hunger. Future of the rural world” in Berlin. The meeting centred on creating jobs and improving employment prospects for young people.

The future of humankind will be decided in rural areas. This conviction formed the backdrop of the conference “One World – No Hunger. Future of the rural world”, for which Federal Development Minister Gerd Müller had invited actors from the fields of politics, the private sector, academia and civil society to Berlin in late April in the context of Germany’s G20 presidency. The event focused on how jobs and employment perspectives could be created for rural areas, especially with regard to young people.

The conference was also attended by around 130 young people from Africa, from G20 countries and from Germany. In the run-up to the event, and against the background of their experience as farmers, entrepreneurs or representatives of farmers’ associations and NGOs, they exchanged their views on creating attractive rural regions at the “Rural Future Lab”, and they presented examples of innovative start-ups and business models to the conference participants.
