In order to assess your understanding of the interdisciplinary topics covered in this course, The Future of Food, you will need to demonstrate your mastery of the course learning objectives via the completion of a capstone project. The capstone project requires that you assess the current status of the food systems in an assigned region. Then consider the food systems in your assigned region for the future scenarios of human population growth and increased temperatures. You will develop your assessment of the current status of the regional food system gradually as you progress through the course material. At the end of every third module, you will complete an assignment designed to help you gather and organize the information you will need to assess the future food scenarios.
You will need to select a region from a list of pre-approved regions or gain permission from your instructor to choose another site. More information will be provided at the end of Module 1.
