如果去年bobapp苹果的虚拟可持续农业会议有什么收获的话, it was: No matter the place, platform, or pandemic, our community of farmers and gardeners, educators and students, advocates and food systems leaders, service providers and agribusinesses, can’t be stopped. We know how to have fun, build community, learn from each other, 并为建立一个更加公正和可持续的粮食系统的共同愿景而努力, regardless of where we are.

虽然情况不允许bobapp苹果在接下来的一年里亲自参加大型活动, bobapp苹果已经准备好在不到一周的时间里让社区重新团结起来. 5-15, 2021! bobapp苹果一直在努力改进虚拟会议体验,让您可以享受超过55次的会议体验 workshops, 115 speakers, 2 keynote panels, and 39 opportunities for live connection (11次圆桌讨论,10次晨会,9次聚会,8次会面,3次询问作者). We can’t wait for you to be part of it!

If you’re on the fence about whether or not the CFSA 2021 Sustainable Agriculture Conference is right for you, 以下是你想要加入近500个同行并在今天注册的五大理由.


 

1. 你是一个现场社区的一部分,而不仅仅是一个虚拟会议.

不像观看一系列直播或录制的网络研讨会, bobapp苹果已经建立了一个平台,可以把你带到一个所有事情的会议中心!

At any given time, there will be others on the platform chatting, watching, learning, 玩, and posting. 你拥有一个由人、游戏、社交动态和 learning opportunities at your fingertips.

没有人愿意盯着电脑听几个小时的音乐, 因此,bobapp苹果有意设计bobapp苹果的项目,包括更方便的分组会议, 住问&圆桌讨论、聚会和网络会议比以往任何时候都多! 只是因为你是虚拟的并不意味着你不渴望同样的东西 connection opportunities that conference attendees have cherished for decades. 

如果你的日程安排不允许参加现场会议,还是有办法互动的! 所有与会者都可以使用私有消息功能来交换直接消息, post to message boards for public discussion, 在每个会话的聊天部分留下评论或问题, or join video rooms.

Albeit live or on your own time, 有很多方法可以联系和学习其他与会者,并与会议社区分享你的技能和知识.

 

2. You can pair online learning with on-farm intensives.

bobapp苹果很高兴能将在线学习与现场演示相结合, farm tours, and face-to-face instruction for the first time. You can watch virtual workshops on agritourism, mushroom production, seed saving, 免耕, and high tunnel management, and then attend an on-farm intensive of the same topic.

混合会议允许来自各种学习风格的人参与到材料中. While virtual is excellent for visual, auditory, and reading/writing learners, 农场强化训练允许动觉学习者参与并通过做来学习.

3. You have a busy schedule, so the agenda is flexible.

Spread across ten days, 活动安排允许您按照自己的节奏参加会议, around your workday, family obligations, and obligatory fall festivities. Can’t do mornings? No problem! 每天晚上观看现场研讨会,并在你有能力的时候播放早上会议的录音.

把这次会议当作你日常生活中的一个很好的消遣, 或者让自己完全沉浸在演讲者的演讲中, 聚会, round table discussions, and networking sessions every day.

Whatever the approach, you can create a personalized agenda, watch workshops live or on-demand, play games, and meet new folks on your own time.

4. You’re going to have fun, and we’re here for it.

之间的 conference games, round table discussions, message boards, and networking sessions, 除了从研讨会中学习,您还可以找到更多享受会议的方法.

bobapp苹果知道这个社区的工作有多辛苦,所以给自己一些时间来玩. And, with over $3,500 in , we’re practically paying you to have fun!

热心提示:如果你提前注册,你就可以进入会前比赛,时间是10/25-11/1. The winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card!

5. You can take the conference with you.

你不仅可以在你的移动设备上访问会议, 但是学习也不必在会议结束后就结束! 在3月1日之前,您可以访问该平台和所有的会话, 2022, 所以有足够的时间回去看会议, visit the trade show, or follow up with speakers and other attendees.

“We know how to have fun, build community, learn from each other, 并为建立一个更加公正和可持续的粮食系统的共同愿景而努力, regardless of where we are.”

bobapp苹果从与会者那里听到的最大的挫折之一是,他们讨厌在参加多个会议之间做出选择. With this format, 你不仅不需要在参加一个课程和另一个课程之间做出选择, but you also get to re-listen to your favorites. bobapp苹果都有过这样的经历:bobapp苹果的笔记跟不上演讲者的节奏!

 

All in all, we are thrilled to again be able to offer a safe, affordable, 以及旨在通过资源共享加强当地粮食系统的无障碍虚拟聚会, thoughtful discussion, and meaningful human connection. We hope you’ll join us.
