Journey 2050

Journey 2050 takes students on a virtual farm simulation that explores world food sustainability. Using an inquiry based approach the program encourages students to make decisions and adjust them as they see their impact on society, the environment and the economy at a local and global scale. The students experience the lives of three farm families in Kenya, India, and Canada. As the student interacts with each family they learn the role of best management practices in feeding the world, reducing environmental impacts and in improving social performance through greater access to education, medical care and community infrastructure. Our Journey to feeding the world has started.

Farmers 2050

Grow crops, raise livestock, craft and sell goods and engage with local and global partners as you level up. Feeding the world relies on balancing your economic, social and environmental sustainability so strive to be a leader. Along the way, real farmers from across the world will show you what they are doing on their farms.

Caring for our Watersheds

The CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS™ program is an environmental educational competition that encourages creativity and rewards students for the solutions they identify. CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS partners with communities to create focused solutions to local watershed issues.

Each year Agrium invites students to submit proposals that answer the question:
“WHAT CAN YOU DO TO IMPROVE YOUR WATERSHED?”

The program rewards the students and the schools who submit the most creative, thought-provoking and innovative ideas.

Implementation funding and community mentorship is available to turn the student’s ideas into realistic solutions.
