Course description

The course addresses a pertinent challenge of humankind: how to feed 12 billion people while maintaining the integrity and function of our planet. The course confronts participants with contrasting viewpoints for a nuanced understanding of the multidimensional aspects of food consumption and production. Course participants will explore the food debate as critical consumers and with view of the science behind innovation of food and food systems, locally and globally. The course challenges participants to map the future of food and agriculture. With an emphasis on scientific discussion, small-group mentoring, scientific literacy and communication skills, and networking with world-class researchers, AGRC1040 delivers an authentic learning experience.
