The world’s population is increasing at a rate of 2% per year. In addition to population growth, expert predictions of widespread flooding in some areas and drought in others make for a nightmare scenario on agriculture’s capacity to supply the growing need for food worldwide.
What can we do about this? How do we ensure food security for everyone on the planet? Out-of-the-box thinking and groundbreaking solutions to food production increase our chances to save the world from hunger.
In “Fields of Tomorrow”, visitors are introduced to the scientific background, exhaustive research, and intriguing concepts being developed in Israel and the world in response to food production and supply issues.
The exhibition has three indoor experiential spaces: a field laboratory, a food laboratory and an information laboratory; as well as outdoor sites dedicated to food production – a hothouse, a net house and different types of agricultural land.
