International Association for Students in Agriculture discuss sustainability at NYC conference

April 9

Five Iowa State University students traveled to the United Nations’ Headquarters in New York City for the 22nd session of the biannual Youth Assembly conference from Feb. 14-16.

ISU’s International Association of Students in Agricultural and Related Sciences (IAAS) chapter members Lauren Suhi, Natalie Bidner, Izzy Shehab, Brandon Beall, and Kaleb Baber participated in global sustainability discussions at the conference. Bidner, Shebab and Suhi are students majoring in Global Resource Systems.

Each day of the Assembly was designed to provide the youth who attended opportunities and information that could help them establish a platform for dialogue and the generation of ideas and partnerships with international delegates.
