The GCARD 2 was, for me, the best conference that I`ve attended. Big crowd of professionals from my field, great group of young professionals, good speeches with interesting and controversial topics to discuss after… It all led to a beautiful, dreamy-like gathering where, if you think about it, young professionals were on the center stage.
We got to interview high level decision makers; we`ve provided some in-depth news, live from the conference via our social media team; we`ve convince people, through our interventions in different sessions, that youth should be a key focus in every discussion regarding agriculture and how to feed the world.
This all was topped by the diplomas given by Tabare Aguerre Lombardo, the Uruguayan Minister of Stockbreeding, Agriculture and Fisheries, for the contribution provided by the social media team. The tens of blog posts, thousands of tweets were crucial to having the message of the conference sent to a bigger audience with the wooden language of researchers and policy makers transformed into an easy to comprehend message for all to see and hear.
