YPARD Members testimonials
Just barely two weeks after graduation I am flying across continents to attend the second Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development (GCARD2) held at Punta Del Este Uruguay.
I am one of the founding members of YPARD. I am also a promoter of the creation of YPARD European Unit hosted by the Bern University of Applied Sciences, School of Agricultural, Forestry and Food Sciences (HAFL), and its representation in EFARD, the European Forum in ARD (of which I am currently vice-chair).
"YP of the Month"
Heidi Bättig, Switzerland
Zollikofen, Switzerland, 28.11.2012

It’s 5.15 in the morning in Ufhusen (LU), a small village of Switzerland. It’s dark and silent, most of the animals and humans are still asleep. It's at this early time of the day that Heidi Bättig (a Swiss young woman, 33 year old) starts her work. She slips into her boots and goes to the barn.
While their numbers and even voices may not be as pronounced at the UN climate negotiations here in Doha, the simple presence of young people at the talks is a reminder to the negotiators that it’s not just about the energy and economic security, but also about generations to come.
