Youth in Data

Workshops

*** APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2020 WORKSHOP CLOSE THURSDAY 15 OCTOBER **

The Youth in Data Workshop takes place every year alongside the Big Data in Agriculture Convention.

The workshop introduces participants to important themes around digital agriculture and how using big data approaches to agricultural development can accelerate food security goals. It also aims to engage youths working in digital agriculture on how to use digital media tools to communicate effectively to increase the impact of their work, and for those already working in media, to show them how to better report on digital agriculture projects.

The workshop runs over five action-packed days. During the first two days, delegates will learn the basics of digital agriculture, including the latest groundbreaking technologies, sector challenges, and career opportunities. They will also learn about using digital media as a powerful tool to communicate about development, covering social media, interviewing, blog writing, data reporting, and other media skills.

Delegates are then able to apply their newly-acquired skills during the three days of the annual CGIAR convention on Big Data in Agriculture, engaging through social media, interviewing and connecting with leading industry experts, speakers and Inspire Challenge finalists, and by writing blogs, which will be published on BIG DATA’s website.
