  • Giving Back Was My Take-away from Youth in Landscapes Initiative

    Having the opportunity to give back and share what I’ve learnt in these master classes gives me the motivation to continuously find ways to share these lessons from the youth sessions.

  • This is not a goodbye… “hasta luego” YPARD !

    Today I am bidding farewell to the YPARD community to pursue other opportunities. (...) During these months, I’ve had the chance not only to learn and develop my communications skills, but also have I got to know the importance of agriculture in addressing climate change and the important role the youth plays in building a sustainable future.
