Dear all,

Please see attached a flyer for a webinar hosted by Virginia Tech and collaborators based on the CIRED project: Exploring the Use of Blockchain to Improve Food Security through African Indigenous Vegetables in Western Kenya. This webinar explores the contexts in which blockchain offers real solutions to strengthening value chains and its potential for creating social impact, like improved food security or engaging youth in agriculture. For the optimist and the skeptic, this two-hour webinar aims to discard the trendiness of the emerging technology and take a pragmatic view of the opportunities to use blockchain to strengthen last-mile agriculture. We hope to see you there!
