ABOUT THE CONFERENCE:

The Board of SASAE will be holding the 2021 Annual Conference in Paarl, Western Cape, October 11-14, 2021. The theme of the conference is: “Facilitation for development in Agricultural Extension”

The South African Society for Agricultural Extension is a voluntary professional organisation with the aim to improve the quality of extension to all farmers through its members. The ultimate aim of agricultural extension professionals is to influence development change in the societies where they work.

To facilitate this process, contributions relating to any of the following sub-themes are invited:

Sub themes:

  • The relevance of facilitation for development in the context of agricultural extension
  • Facilitating change in individuals, groups and organisations
  • Facilitating multi-stakeholder engagements
