Feeding the Future: Food Security and CPS

Food insecurity is prevalent and is only expected to get worse due to the effects of climate change.  If we are to use CPS to help alleviate food insecurity, data must be gathered from a diverse set of perspectives.  By using simulations, we can gain new perspectives and be better prepared to formulate challenges and discover these crucial solutions.  Each person will be given a 1-acre plot – represented with paper cut outs – with the vision of feeding 500 children.  

What will your challenge statement be?  How can you turn resistors into assisters in order to succeed?  A mindset of deliberate creativity will be crucial to success.  Prepare to leave with the insights of a new perspective and fresh ideas on how you can be a part of the solution for food insecurity.
