Women Leaders in Water for Food: Empowering Youth Entrepreneurs

Daugherty Water for Food Institute Conference Series

10:00 am
Creating a supportive environment for women in agriculture and water leadership is important for ensuring future water food security around the globe. Water and agriculture are closely tied and in the first two sessions of our webinar series, we’ll hear from women currently making an impact in this space through various programs or projects, and from those specifically working to empower women, advance educational opportunities and organize programming related to women in ag and water.

In the first session, we are excited to hear from award-winning chef, entrepreneur, and agriculture advocate, Louise Mabulo, as she discusses youth and sustainable solutions to food security. Mabulo promotes sustainable agriculture and farm-to-table cuisine and was recently awarded as a Young Champion of the Earth by United Nations Environment Programme.

From the United Kingdom, Louise migrated to a rural area in the Philippines, where she runs her own farm and Culinary Lounge. She established her venture, The Cacao Project, promoting sustainable agriculture, while providing farmers with a disaster-resilient, high income livelihood.

Following Mabulo’s talk, there will be a Q+A panel to also include several University of Nebraska students studying agriculture and human dimensions. Please come with any questions you have or submit them at the end of the form when registering for the event. While time may not allow for all questions to be addressed in the one-hour webinar, we hope to follow-up with them after the event.
