In the coming decades, we need to ensure that 10 billion people sharing the Earth will have enough to eat.

Amidst heated debate (and a fair bit of hot air), comes this clear-headed exploration of global food production and distribution, which investigates different innovations and visions for our future – including artificial meat, insects, industrial farming and urban gardening.

With the environmental, social and political impact of food production increasingly impossible to ignore, and with global hunger in urgent need of our attention, 10 Billion presents a unique opportunity to reflect on the role we all play in ensuring food sustainability – and the future of our planet.
