College students recently discussed various issues affecting agriculture during a panel called College Cafeteria Confidential - Millennials in the Lunch Line. One topic the students discussed was sustainability and how it - and many other buzz words - is defined regarding agriculture.
To reach today’s students - student Eric Estroff says agriculture should use Facebook and Buzzfeed to connect because college students have short attention spans. As a millennial - Estroff says there are two minutes to grab his attention - so information must be creative. The information from the panelists is further proof of the need for agriculture to connect with the millennial generation in new ways.
