Global Partners

MESA’s Global Partners are sister NGOs, universities, and cultural exchange programs around the world. Like MESA, they are actively promoting sustainable agriculture and/or cultural exchange in their own region. This network of sister programs is the starting point for the international Stewards who come to the US through the MESA program.

By participating in the MESA program, Global Partners bring additional training opportunities to their constituent communities and diversify their programmatic offerings. They act as MESA representatives in their countries and recruit and interview applicants who would like to come to the US as MESA Stewards as well as support MESA Stewards prior to and after their US program. They also have opportunities to host exchanges in their own local communities for farmers and advocates from the US and around the world.

Stewards got a crash course in sustainable food systems with some of the workers, educators and farmers who are radically changing the way we grow, eat, and distribute our food.
