An Audio Drama about

Food Security


Imagine a world where farming isn't an option.




With demand for food expected to grow by 70% over the next generation, and climate change rapidly affecting our ability to support our needs with traditional agriculture, developing strategies to feed our growing population represents one of the greatest challenges facing the world today. But it's not just a question of ramping up production. Consider that we live in a world where both hunger and obesity are on the rise, and 30% of all food produced is wasted. In addition, agri-food systems are a major drain on our sources of fresh water, and a major producer of greenhouse gases. How can we produce enough to feed everyone equitably and nutritiously, without threatening the ecosystems we depend on for life?


This audio drama will immerse you in a world where most of the land on Earth has become unsuitable for traditional agriculture, leading to price shocks for fresh food, especially in remote locations. Humanity has had to adapt in response, exploring and expanding new technologies and alternative types of food. Peer into a future where the sobring reality of worldwide food insecurity may lead to desperate decisions.
