Journey 2050

Journey2050 is a free, interdisciplinary, inquiry-based agriculture education program that challenges students to answer the essential question: “How will we sustainably feed nearly 10 billion people by the year 2050?” Journey 2050 takes students on a virtual simulation exploring world food sustainability, while empowering them to think deeper and understand their impact on the world around them. Journey 2050 is a free educational experience for grades 4+, offered as a field trip or guest speaker opportunity.

Teacher Testimonials

“They all loved the game and wanted to download and keep playing! Very interactive and motivating for this generation. Thank you for the many direct ties to science 7 curriculum.”

“The awareness of world population and exponential growth has repeatedly come up in classroom conversations. Students are now thinking far more globally than before and understanding that there are challenges for them to consider as time passes. Some students have also expressed interest in becoming farmers too which is usually an uncommon career choice for students this age.”

“I have never had a more impressive line-up of Sustainability Projects, ever in my class! It was very helpful to kick off our project with Journey 2050, for them to truly understand what Sustainability means, and see the wall of projects to inspire students for what a 12 year old kid can do. I am happy to partner up for all upcoming educational opportunities. It's a pleasure to work with your team.”
