Due to climate change and the development of new technologies, scientists predict that we will be able to do agriculture in northern lands that have, until now, been unable to support farming. While the potential to bring down food costs in isolated northern communities and increase global food production could lead to improved food security, disturbing these previously unfarmed northern soils also has its risks. Learn more about the potential benefits and risks of introducing agriculture to the far north, and possible alternatives in the latest addition to our video series.

Thanks for stopping by! 

 

At Feeding 9 Billion, we study the future of food, including topics such as the digital agricultural revolution, the effects of climate change on agriculture, and sustainable food packaging solutions. We believe that these issues are relevant to everyone, and that education is key to creating global food systems that can feed 9 billion people by 2050. 

 

One of our passion projects is creating accessible and engaging learning tools that will get people excited to learn about food security, and thinking critically about solutions. This website shares the results of that work. Take a look around, or check them out below!
