Aims and Objectives


An initiative of the Agricultural Shows Australia (ASA), Next Gen is the youth arm of the ASA. Next Gen’s objective is to actively reinforce and guide the next generation of Australian agricultural entrepreneurs, by encouraging the formation of a forward-looking regional committee in every region of Australia. They are committed to facilitating the establishment of new organisations and improving existing groups by acting as a hub for knowledge sharing, opening lines of communication, and providing models and approaches for focusing on successful growth in the future.


Next Gen aims to strengthen the show movement across the country by increasing youth participation within local show societies, thereby creating stronger, more sustainable agricultural shows and continuing the legacy of these iconic events.


They do this by:


  • Acting as a vehicle for the voices of young people involved in agriculture and the Shows Movement

  • Providing opportunities for like-minded young people to meet, share and support one another

  • Increase motivation and harness the clear enthusiasm young people have for being involved in their rural communities and agricultural industries

  • Provide education and facilitate learning opportunities for young people

  • Share best practices across a range of agricultural skills and event organisation

  • Enable networking across generations to assist with mentoring and to forge new links between young people and key industry stakeholders.
