2018 Convention & Inspire Challenge

Welcome to our social media toolkit for the 2018 Big Data in Agriculture Convention and Inspire Challenge!

Our 2nd Annual Convention will highlight data-driven approaches to multi-scale food systems analysis, landscapes, ecosystem services, and the special role of animal science in building resilient food systems worldwide. Three days of focused, action-based discussion to find commonalities across research institutes, governments, and private organizations set the stage for a productive and data-driven year ahead.

At the Convention, we’ll announce the winners of the 2018 Inspire Challenge grant. We’re looking to fund novel approaches that democratize data-driven insights to inform local, national, regional, and global policies and applications in agriculture and food security in real time; helping people – especially smallholder farmers and producers – to lead happier and healthier lives.

We hope you find this useful to help promote our event and key messages via your social media channels and related networks.
