NOTICE FOR WAA FORESTRY AND AGRONOMIST VOLUNTEERS FOR EXPO

LAUNCH OF THE WAA FORESTRY AND AGRONOMIST VOLUNTEERS FOR EXPO

1. BE A WAA FORESTRY AND AGRONOMIST VOLUNTEERS for EXPO2015

The great MILAN EXPO 2015 event on the theme of "feeding the planet, energy for life" will have agronomist and forestry professionals of the world as preferential partners. The World Association of Agronomists (WAA) is taking part in the exhibition as a "Civil Society Participant" with its own exhibition space named: "The Agronomist – Global Farm Lab 2.0". Global farm represents the unit of measure for assessing the well-being of the planet where the different environmental and production components are measured. The Farm Lab 2.0 is a workshop that fits into land and business contexts where new products, new methods and new processes are being developed through the work of agronomists.

The Pavilion presents the contextual representation of the participation of the World Association of Agronomist in which the issues, practices and innovations of Global Farm are featured.

Because of the importance of the themes and the level of involvement of the agricultural and forestry sector, the Worldwide Association of Agronomists (WAA) and The National Agronomist and Forestry Council (CONAF), delegated to develop the project proposal for the participation of WAA in EXPO 2015, believe they must put in place the best organisational and human resources available to the sector: Qualified persons, who are willing to devote part of their time to contribute to the organisation and management of one of the most important events of the past few years, an exhibition spanning one million square metres, "a veritable journey around the world

through the flavours and traditions of the peoples of the Earth".

The WAA and CONAF offer agronomy and forestry specialists and university students the opportunity to participate in one of the biggest events of the century.
