You might have heard it many times by now: the world’s population will reach 9 billion people by the year 2050. That’s quite a few mouths to feed and a swiftly changing planet upon which to do so. The shifting environment and resulting stresses on the food chain are very real. We need to work together to come up with ways to grow food to #Feedthe9Billion in 2050.
The future of agriculture will be defined by a series of bold, innovative solutions that pit harsh environments against human ingenuity. We might need to look to the stars – literally – to find our way forward to the farms of the future.
#CropsonMars is a special hackathon that invites the best and brightest minds—people who are passionate, innovative and looking to create something spectacular—to join us this November to create software, data or design solutions that are literally out of this world. The #CropsOnMars motto is – if we can grow it there, we can grow it anywhere.
