Johanna Gysin's message of handing over of YPARD Switzerland representative's position
Being the first YPARD country representative of Switzerland was a challenging task – and a very interesting one! During my time as country representative I got a new perspective on the landscape of agriculture-related Institutes in Switzerland and all around the world. The position gave me the possibility to get into touch with people from other organizations and discuss with them on their views and experiences.
Through the workshop I could attend I met the other country representatives of Europe. It was very enriching to learn about their experiences and ideas. Their commitment was very motivating to me and I’m now looking forward to support Rahel Wyss as the new country representative of Switzerland. My wish is to transfer my enthusiasm for networking and connecting young professionals in Switzerland to her and thus contribute to the growth of YPARD Switzerland!
