Idea pitch

We want to show to a group of students that Germany is not just a place for migration but a place where e can learn from them how to be good workers and in mean time having a very entertaining life. Showing that all of this can happen in Kosovo too.

Where will your idea take place?

Pristina, Kosovo, Germany

Why does Europe need your idea?

The European society at large needs to be more connected exchanging ideas and work experiences. The best way to do it is through working together in different fields. Agriculture as a primary field for creating food should be more entertaining and more inter-connected. Through this project, we like to contribute in this aspect where young farmers connect with each other, exchange ideas and experiences while they grab a beer or have a burger together somewhere in Europe. The most important idea of this project is to convince people that migration is not the best solution, by visiting Germany we will show to the young ones that working in agriculture Is the same everywhere and provides a good life.

What is your impact?

The main aim of the project is to deliver a positive view of being a farmer in Europe. To prove that when being farmer then there is enough time for other entertainment and activities. Definitely to give education to students that the same knowledge and culture can be applied in Kosovo too. Throughout this knowledge, we think this project will have the impact in developing agriculture in Kosovo, and to prevent migration toward Western Europe.

How do you get there?

As we previously mention the project will last 12 month. During working in this project, we think to select 7 students from 7 different high schools in Kosovo. Priory we want to organize trainings with them related to the importance of agriculture field, and by the participations to the test we will select seventh out of them. After the selection, we will visit the region of Ruhr in particularly we will visit some different​ farms of this region. When we come back from Germany we together with students will share experiences that we got from the German farmers. Each of students will have its own presentation about the experiences in Germany.
