INSPIRING THE YOUTH TO JOIN THE AGRI INDUSTRY: Lucentlands Podcast Ep.7 - Marianne van der Laarse
In this episode of Lucentlands Podcast, we had the pleasure of interviewing Marianne van der Laarse, the founder of Agrijobs, a company dedicated to connecting young people with career opportunities in the agriculture industry. We discussed the challenges of attracting youth to the field and the importance of inspiring stories in encouraging them to pursue careers in agriculture.
Marianne shared with us her own personal journey, and how she was inspired to start Agrijobs after realizing the potential for growth and innovation in the industry, but also the lack of young people getting involved. She spoke about the many misconceptions about the industry and how her company is working to change that by highlighting the diverse and exciting career paths available in agriculture.
We also discussed the importance of highlighting the role of technology and sustainability in modern agriculture, and how these factors can attract young people who are passionate about making a positive impact on the world.
Overall, it was a fascinating conversation that highlighted the importance of inspiring and connecting young people with opportunities in the agriculture industry. We hope that our listeners will be inspired to learn more about the industry and consider a career in agriculture. With companies like Agrijobs, the future of agriculture is bright and diverse, and we are excited to see the impact that the next generation will have on the industry.
