Deadline extended till 3 April! Receive a 10% reduction on the tuition fee when you pay before 15 March.

"This course has given me many concrete tools that help me in my daily work.
I have learned to see farmers as stakeholders rather than just as beneficiaries.
And I have learned to design extension systems that link research with innovation.
All this improves the sustainability of the activities I am involved in."
