Pratodo Mundo – Food for 10 Billion

Pratodo Mundo – Food for 10 Billion is an interactive museum tour that explores the sustainability issue of feeding a growing world population, estimated to arrive at 10 billion by 2050. The exhibition is divided into five major areas: The Culture of Eating, which will show how our eating habits are becoming globalized while market pressure is standardizing certain types of food, generating a loss of agrobiodiversity; New Agricultural Frontiers, which highlights alternative places that already produce food but will have to intensify production; Technologies, about techniques to improve the genetics and nutrients of food and its greater resilience to climate change; Health and Society, which addresses the quality of global diets, the importance of taking full advantage of food and alternatives in the consumption of proteins, such as insects, fungi, and algae; and finally, Food for Tomorrow. This resource is in Portuguese.
