Journey 2050 Social Activation Grant

For 4-H Volunteers and Associations

How will we sustainably feed nine billion people by the year 2050? Explore world food sustainability and see how our decisions impact social, economic and environmental factors locally and globally through a virtual simulation. Learn from farm families in Kenya, India and Canada as you strive to feed a growing population. Through a generous grant from Agrium, we are offering local grants and webinar training that will enable you to run a Journey 2050 program in your area. This will also be featured at the 2017 Conference & Annual Meeting. To visit the Journey 2050 website click here
