Horizon Scholars Podcast Series

SYN Media and The Rural Industries Research and Development Coporation present a series of podcasts created by young leaders in agriculture. 

The Horizon Scholarship has been developed by RIRDC to support the next generation of agricultural leaders, who will take up the challenge of farming for the future.  It is for young people who are passionate about agriculture, with a keen interest in the future of our industries and who are ready to expand their networks and learn new skills. Each year RIRDC hosts a summit where the scholars gather and share their vision for the future of agriculture in Australia. In 2016 the summit was held in Canberra and SYN Media was there to help the students schre their vision. 

Each podcast in this series was created in Canberra at the 2016 Horizon Summit. With the help of three producers from Melbourne’s Youth Media Organisation, SYN Media, the Horizon Scholars investigate an aspect of agriculture they are passionate about.
