Biovision Africa Trust, PELUM and others are hosting the 1st Eastern Africa Agroecology Conference, taking place on March 21-24, in Nairobi and online. YALTA will co-lead the conference track on Youth and Women in Agroecology with a keynote speech on how to make agroecology attractive for youth.

This conference aims to invoke consciousness and motivate regional and continental communities to dialogue how to invest in interventions which can ameliorate the negative impacts of the current unsustainable food systems by transitioning towards more environmentally friendly solutions with long-term vision and planning.

The conference will be held at Safari Park Hotel and will include exhibitions, plenary and breakout sessions as well as field excursions to agroecological enterprises. The conference will be a hybrid event comprising in-person attendance and livestreaming for on-line participants.
