The average homo sapien eats an estimated 35 tons of food in their lifetime. A 7 billion+ human civilization requires an immense amount of nutrition to survive, not to mention, thrive. Unfortunately, the Earth’s soil has a limited carrying capacity to produce the agricultural yields we require, and this capacity is dwindling with time.
In envisioning a thriving future for Earth, we need to evaluate and investigate the environmental footprint of the daily food on our plate and reconsider how and where we acquire our vital nutrients from.
The advent of agriculture is seen as a turning point in human history, widely considered as the main catalyst in human evolution as well as in the emergence of civilization. What kind of new dawn will the next agricultural revolution usher in? Is it possible for us to cultivate a tomorrow where all humans have access to healthy food without depleting the Earth, and instead actually helping biodiversity proliferate? Can new technology and innovations in agriculture bring about a new paradigm in our food cultivation unlike anything we’ve seen before?
In the April edition of Futurists’ Forum, we dive deeper into the future of agriculture and explore some of the cutting-edge approaches and advancements that are recrafting the way we procure our food. Our speakers will discuss different facets of the new agriculture revolution from urban and modern farming, lab-grown meats, regenerative practices, soil restoration, ecological data tracking, and much more.
