About the GFAR webinars
Our webinars are open to partners in GFAR as well as other nonprofit organisations or individuals working in the area of agriculture, ecosystems and sustainable development. They are attended by scientists, students, communications staff as well as agricultural practitioners.
The webinars present the work of GFAR partners and show how our partners are working together towards shared GFAR goals. If your organisation is not a GFAR partner yet, join now!
We do not ask for a webinar participation fee, but request all participants to actively engage in the online discussions during the webinars.
The webinars are moderated via BlueJeans, an online tool running within any internet browser. It only requires participants to have a good and reliable Internet connection and a computer running any browser.
