You are now a Guardian of the Earth! Join experts from UWA and Murdoch as we make sure that we all have food to survive as a human race. By 2050 the population of the Earth will be close to 9 billion. We need to start now to ensure we have enough food for our survival. You will be working with experts and scientists to ensure a sustainable food supply now and into the future.
Alternative food sources will be explored. Insects, anyone? Sentinel bees are guarding our coast, why? What is biosecurity and why do we need a seed vault? Explore the ways technology can help us to ensure we provide food for a growing population.
We will look at fair trade to ensure producers are being supported around the world. Students will be challenged to deliver a high quality presentation for an exhibition at the end of this course that would be viewed by special guests and parents.
