Young but Not Naïve

These young people are taking Agricultural Research for Development to the Next Level.


“You will be surprised” is the logo written on the t-shirts of the bunch of youngsters at the GCARD2 pre-conference session of YPARD, which stands for Young Professionals’ Platform for Agricultural Research for Development.

The leaders of the movement have reason to say so. Since its creation in 2006, YPARD has been acting as a platform for knowledge sharing for young professionals to give them an opportunity to interact with each other at various forums. The GCARD2 is exceptional example of this kind of forums, where YPARD brought almost 30 youngsters to report on the conference through social media. Besides learning how to use social media tools for professional purposes, the YPARD members are also working hard to get their voices to be heard at the relevant CGARD2 sessions.
