(Primary) As of 2015, almost 800 million people are chronically undernourished. At the same time, 500 million people are obese. The United Nations estimates that food production needs to increase by 60 percent by 2050 to satisfy the growing demand driven by population growth. Climate change threatens to reverse the progress made so far in the fight against hunger and malnutrition. If action is not quickly taken, climate change will increasingly threaten the achievement of the goal to eradicate hunger (SDG #2). Join us with our partners at Ocean Wise as we explore ways that students can participate in the global movement for food security.
