Welcome!

Goeiemorgen!

It is bright and early (or just early, as it's not quite yet bright) on day one of Tropentag 2018. The student reporters have been in Ghent the past two days and are excited to cover many events in the next three days and have a little bit of fun on the side. 

As the conference unfolds, you'll see us in our white t-shirts (we'll be taking great care not to spill on them) running around like busy little bees. Please feel free to approach us if you'd like your poster, presentation or general self documented here within our blog or on Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook or Medium.  

You can follow us at #Tropentag2018, and we wish you all great success and much fun over the coming days.

Reporter Jess Lloyd

Jess is a Canadian masters student at the University of Hohenheim, and has just completed her master's degree. Having grown up on a farm in rural Ontario, after completing her bachelor’s in Environmental Science her interest in sustainable agriculture came naturally. Paired with a passion for helping others and interest in rural development (and the fact she’d be ok with never seeing snow again), she decided to pursue a masters in agriculture in the tropics and subtropics, with a pointed interest in sustainable agriculture. She is currently searching for opportunities post-MSc and is super excited for the future. Jess is both the editor of the Tropentag 2018 team and a blogger, and is looking forward to collaborating with such a diverse and fun group of people to promote Tropentag to the world.
