CAPSTONE: Feeding 9 billion through sustainable farm design (1 of 3)

Unit 5: Food (biosphere and geosphere)
Lesson 22 of 24

Objective: By the end of the first part of the Food CAPSTONE experience, student will be able to 1) identify broad human needs that are unmet by the current global food system and 2) define specific problems that, if solved, would meet the food needs of the growing global human population.

Big Idea: The human population will approach 9 billion by 2050, but our current food system was not designed to sustainably feed so many. How might we apply our understanding of agricultural methods to feed 9 billion people in an environmentally sustainable manner?
