As already pointed by many International Organisations, professional training for young people and the dissemination of innovations play an irreplaceable role in the development of employment opportunities in rural areas.
Digitalization is a strategic tool for the development of family agriculture oriented towards an economic, social and environmental sustainability and for the creation of business networks capable of increasing the recognition of agricultural value in the markets.
We look at the agricultural company as a guide for the process of sustainable and lasting development.

As an expression of the CIA-Italian Farmers, AèV believes it is essential to support the development of local Farmers’associations capable of: promoting agricultural modernization through training and technical assistance services, representing the needs and demands of its members, actively participating in local decision-making processes.
