Blogs Series on: Agriculture, ICTs and Young Professionals Summary of Weeks 1 & 2
The current YPARD and e-Agriculture blogs series highlights the experiences of Youth in Agriculture and the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for rural development.
During the first two weeks, blogs have been published in English, Spanish and French, in which the authors stressed that the Future of Farming is now, and that it is fundamental to link ICTs and youth for agricultural innovation in that respect. ICTs are especially important because they present agriculture as a more attractive field for young people, and facilitate information and networking to support Young Professionals in Agricultural Research. ICTs are used for agriculture in ways that are of special interest for young professionals, such as traceability. The experience of “Los frutichicos”, a research program with young professionals from different fields documents an example of this.
The Series of Blogs will run until August, and we encourage you to participate! Send us your article ideas, or share your thoughts and comment on recently published blogs!
