In preparation for the World Water Day 2015, the Young Professionals for Agricultural Development network (YPARD) launches the #youthinagselfie contest to engage the youth in this key event. By answering the question “How does water contribute to food security?” participants will have the chance to show their views as well as to contribute to bring more light into the unprecedented challenge of how feeding a population of possibly 9 or more billion people.
In order to participate, all you have to do is to follow the steps below:
- Think about an answer to the question: “How does water contribute to food security?”
- Write it down on a paper/tablet. Add the link of an article/video, etc. where you got the inspiration/ information from. You can use an URL shortener in order to make fit the link of your source onto your tweet like: biy.ly or Google URL shortener;
- Snap a selfie of yourself holding your paper/tablet with your smartphone/camera;
- Share it through your Twitter account with the hashtags #WorldWaterDay, #WATERIS and #youthinagselfie, the link to your source of inspiration, followed by the handler @YPARD and @UN_Water by the 15th of March, 2015.
