Feeding a Hungry Planet: Agriculture, Nutrition and Sustainability, the FREE, massive open online course (MOOC) developed by the Thematic Network for Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems for the SDG Academy, is relaunching on April 16!
If you’re not familiar with this course, it covers the role of agricultural and food systems in the ambitious yet imperative goal of feeding every member of our growing world population a healthy diet. I and other faculty members serve as lecturers in short videos and have provided research and insights that enrollees can read in conjunction with the videos. We discuss the history of agricultural development, the intersection of food and agriculture systems with the Sustainable Development Goals, technological advances in these fields, and much more.
The full list of lecturers are:
