How will we sustainably feed nearly 10 billion people by the year 2050? Journey 2050 takes students on a virtual farm simulation that explores world food sustainability. Using an inquiry based approach the program encourages students to make decisions and adjust them as they see their impact on society, the environment and the economy at a local and global scale. The students hear from farmers across the globe. As the student interacts with each family they learn the role of best management practices in feeding the world, reducing environmental impacts and in improving social performance through greater access to education, medical care and community infrastructure. This FREE program was designed for anyone interested in teaching their students about world food sustainability. All resources are provided, designed by agriculture experts and teachers.
