E15427: Engineers Without Borders - Building a Sustainable Food System in Splash 2022 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2022)
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals established in 2015 by the United Nations as a "shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future". One of the goals is setting up a sustainable food system that will end food insecurity and improve nutrition by 2030. A sustainable food system is defined as “a food system that delivers food security and nutrition for all in such a way that the economic, social and environmental bases to generate food security and nutrition for future generations are not compromised.” In this class, we will explore the challenges to building a sustainable food system on a global scale and look at examples of sustainable food initiatives, including one of MIT Engineers Without Borders’ projects. In the end, students will brainstorm solutions to a hypothetical scenario in which a community is facing food insecurity based on the principles of a sustainable food system.
