In the previous newsletter we informed you about one initiative led by Zamorano alum Rodrigo Baccaro (firstname.lastname@example.org) and others. The initiative has been well received by alumni and has led to the development of a commission of distance education at AGEAP International. We will continue to work with Rodrigo to develop this initiative further. In the meantime, such webinars have had great reach. As of June, this initiative had reached 11,450 participants, plus more than 11,000 more in social media platforms such as Facebook and YouTube (image below).
Another webinar was the first international symposium of organic banana production led by Byron Montero (email@example.com) from Koppert Ecuador and the International Organization for Biological Control, Neotropical Region Section (IOBC-NTRS). Both Zamorano and AGEAP International supported this initiative.
