Young Pacific Islanders learn to utilise social media network to share Agricultural Knowledge


Young men and women from around the Pacific which included Fiji, PNG, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Samoa, Tonga, Nauru, Palau and Vanuatu gathered at the Tanoa International Hotel in Nadi, Fiji to learn how they could be able to share Agricultural Knowledge on how to improve farming technics in the pacific.

The training was facilitated by the Secretariat of the Pacific community (SPC) in collaboration with funding from the Technical Centre for Agriculture and Rural Cooperation (CTA). With the ever increasing trend of technology around the world in information dissemination, and the high use of social networks such as Facebook, twitter, google plus and linkedIn, information can be disseminated and shared easily.

Participants where very grateful for the training and believed with the training and the network they have created at the training would last and that the main goal and objective behind the training which sharing of agricultural knowledge will come into fruition. The other important things the participants learned was the use of blogs to share information and also it was a way in which the knowledge can be stored in reverse chronological order similar to a diary for future generations.
