The Asociación Mexicana de Periodistas y Directores de Medios Agripecuarios (AMEXMA) is organizing a press tour and hosting the 2023 winter meeting of the IFAJ Executive 22 to 27 February in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.
At the invitation of Alpha Ousmane Souaré of the Association Média et Agriculture pour le Développement Rural (AMEDAR/Guinée), a member of the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists, five (5) journalists from the British Guild of Agricultural Journalists (BGAJ) went on a journey of discovery and experience sharing in Guinea
One of IFAJ’s newest members is a federation formed by merging three associations in Nepal: The Nepal Agricultural Journalists Academy (JONAA), the Agricultural Journalists Society Nepal (SAJ) and the Agricultural Communication Society. Here’s how they did it.
We will encourage our member guilds to utilize the buddy system introduced at the IFAJ to get connected with other guilds outside of Africa. These efforts could mean a lot in driving our network stronger,” said network President Jefferson Massah.
“I can try and steer away from the cliches and fixed neat narratives often trotted out by public figures when they are talking about themselves and their lives, and try instead to shift the discussion slightly differently in the hope of peeling away a few more ‘layers of the onion’…”
We were welcomed with flower garlands, fed the most aromatic curry, brewed the best tea and treated to home made burfi wrapped in silver petals. If an opportunity to visit India ever arises, grab it with both hands!
IFAJ’s 2023 Congress, New Frontiers in the Wild West, hosted by the Canadian Farm Writers’ Federation, will showcase the bounty and diversity of agriculture in the beautiful prairie province of Alberta, Canada. Mark your calendar: June 27 to July 3, 2023.
