Please use this form to nominate a farmer to attend the Global Farmer Roundtable (GFR). The person you are nominating to attend the event and become a member of the Global Farmer Network (GFN) must be a farmer engaged in agricultural production.
This is an invitation-only event hosted by the Global Farmer Network. Nominations for the next Global Farmer Roundtable and Leadership Training are open. Tentatively scheduled to be held during summer 2021, the next Roundtable will include a virtual component prior to meeting in person in Brussels, Belgium. The face-to-face event date is dependent on when travel is allowed and people feel safe.
Those farmers selected will be personally contacted by GFN.
Before nominating yourself or a farmer you know, see the webpage What is the Global Farmer Roundtable? This will give a better understanding of who makes a good candidate for the Roundtable and to be a member of the Global Farmer Network. The webpages on Past Roundtables and the Kleckner Award will also be of interest. The social media accounts should be too – look at GFN on Facebook and also on Twitter with @GlobalFarmerNet and then @World_Farmers where GFN members take turns hosting the handle for a few weeks at a time.
Online nominations are much preferred and very strongly recommended, but we understand at times that may not be possible for everyone. Here are the alternative methods:
- Mail / Post – If you need to send the nomination via mail or post, please include all the information asked for below, you may include a photo and short biography, but it is not required for submission.

Before starting a nomination: Please look over the questions and then have all the necessary information available to complete and submit the nomination. “Instructions” are provided for some of the questions and can be viewed by hovering the cursor over the field.
