Talking about sustainable agriculture is important, but it’s even more important to take meaningful steps to address local and global challenges.
The Journey 2050 Wrap-Up is centered around Project-Based Learning. It is intended as the final outcome for Journey 2050 and includes a Student Workbook to help students:
Identify one concern
Come up with one realistic solution
Determine and execute the steps involved to make their idea a reality
Every youth can make positive changes in their home, school, community, country, and world.
