HarvestEd











HarvestEd content will be broken into four sections in: 

Future Farming: Participants will look at the past, present and future of agriculture in Geelong, Australia and the Asia region. They will focus on agricultural trends and predictions, including new technologies and innovations such as Precision Technology, Vertical Farming, Bio-Science, Robots and Drones. 

Connecting Communities: Participants will examine Geelong’s connection to the world, including its biggest agricultural imports and exports and trading partners, particularly those in the Asia region. They will hear from industry experts and have the opportunity to ask them questions.  

Seeding Change: Participants will identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that exist in the agricultural industry. They will explore big questions such as: 'By 2050 we’ll need to feed two billion more people. How can we do that without overwhelming the planet?' 

Harvesting Potential: Using design thinking, participants will prototype solutions to issues, which may include population growth, scarcity of natural resources, climate change and food security and wastage, all helping you make better sense of this interdependent world by fostering awareness and action on global citizenship. 

HarvestEd will commence in Term 2 2021.
