SDG 2: Zero Hunger

End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

Our planet has provided us with tremendous resources, but unequal access and inefficient handling leaves millions of people malnourished. Goal 2 is all about promoting sustainable agriculture with modern technologies and fair distribution systems, to sustain the whole world’s population and make sure that nobody will ever suffer from hunger again.

Food security is a challenge faced by millions of Canadians and many millions more around the world. York’s Sarah Rotz, an assistant professor at the Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change (EUC), is using virtual technology to help students in her Land and Food Politics course connect with people on the front lines of food production. Through these interactions and the diverse perspectives it exposes them to, students are gaining a deeper understanding of the complexities of land and food. Learn more here.
