Feeding a Hungry Planet

Agriculture, Nutrition and Sustainability

Agriculture is more than waving fields of wheat; our ability to grow food from existing natural resources – and without decimating those resources – is key to sustainably feeding the world. In this 7-week massive open online course, learn about food security worldwide, the effects of malnutrition, how we manage ecosystems that provide food resources and more. You’ll emerge from this course with a clear answer to the question: What can I do to make food consumption and production more sustainable?

This course is for:
  • Graduate students and advanced undergraduate students in agriculture, economics, international development and other fields who are learning about the intersectional factors impacting agriculture and food production/consumption
  • Nutritionists, agriculture professionals and other practitioners interested in the latest developments in the field
  • Sustainable development practitioners – including those who work for international aid organizations and nonprofits in the realms of poverty, nutrition and agriculture – who want to understand the lifecycle of food production and food security
  • Private actors, such as those engaging in or investing in social entrepreneurship and the support of local agriculture
