Journey 2050

How will we sustainably feed nearly 10 billion?

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.

Along your journey you will learn about different countries, careers and innovations that make agriculture one of the leading industries in the world. Unlike any farming game you’ve ever played, Journey 2050 is based on real-life challenges and opportunities. If nothing changes between today and the year 2050, farmers will have to grow 60-70% more food! How do you think farmers and agribusiness can meet this challenge? Watch the videos, play the games, learn about world food sustainability and get involved today!

““My students are having a great time with the Journey 2050 program. They are engaged and having fun. It is great to overhear the side conversations they have about the choices they are making. They celebrate their successes and lament their failures without recognizing that they are learning!””

Melanie Jones, Grade 10 Teacher, Winnipeg, MB,
