Young People and Agriculture: Innovators of the YAP Project

The Young Agripreneurs Pilot Project (YAP Project) is a collaborative initiative led by GFAR and Young Professionals for Agricultural Development (YPARD) to support the participation and success of young people undertaking innovative agricultural endeavors in the agri-food sector.

At the SAI Platform General Assembly in April 2016 in Dublin, our members kindly donated 600 euros to the Young Agripreneurs Pilot (YAP Project) project through the auction of pieces of a mural that had been created for the General Assembly.

The YAP project has received a positive evaluation as a valuable source for learning as well as providing a basis for future practice of the Project.

A thoroughly reviewed report about the Project is now available. This is an interesting read for those seeking to engage with young farmers using social media.

In addition to the final report there is also a great set of blogs from the young agripreneurs themselves posted on the GFAR website.
