The RASC Next Generation (NG) is a forum which brings together people under the age of 40 from all across the globe, who share a common interest and passion for Agriculture.

About the Next Generation

The Next Generation play a huge role within the RASC and its member societies. Since 2004 the Next Generation (NG) have hosted their own biannual conference before the main RASC conference begins. The NGs have grown from strength to strength, sharing information and knowledge across the RASC. The NG conference allows fellow NGs to participate and share experiences and build a network with people of a similar interest. Not only does it allow people to get involved at the conference but it also enables the youth to get involved with their local and national show societies. It is a great way to meet and network with people all across the globe.

The RASC recognises the importance of encouraging youth across the Commonwealth and encouraging people to get involved with Agriculture and Agricultural Shows. The RASC offers member show societies.


The Next Generation seeks to:

• Encourage future leaders within the RASC and its member societies

• Bringing youth together that share a common interest

• Knowledge sharing and information exchange
