With advent of new information, communication tools and technologies along with connection to the wider communities, the stereotype in agriculture is changing and new and innovative generations are interested in it, but their experience remains undocumented. These stories of learning comprise both failure and success and involve process and methods for their outcome.

Those can be inspiring stories for other fellow farmers and help them to solve their problem and adding on new innovation and bringing expertise in them. For this, it is crucial to develop proper environment of experience sharing. Hence a storytelling contest that can encourage youth participants to learn about agriculture related know-how technology to reduce risks and make them more comfortable to adopt new innovations and approaches in it seems like a necessity.

The storytelling presentation will be in Pecha-Kucha format, with guidance of YPARD Nepal members.
