We are on the precipice of a global food crisis. The math is simple and staggering: we need to produce at least 50% more food to feed 9 billion people by 2050, but are currently capped by resource limitations, environmental contamination, and agricultural decline. At MIT, Caleb Harper, an architect turned urban farmer, is working to reverse the tide by revolutionizing agriculture as we know it.
NOW WHAT, the new docu-series hosted by Ryan Duffy, explores our most pressing problems and spotlights the people behind the most creative potential solutions. It poses its titular question sincerely: what do the possible remedies look like, how far away are they, and what obstacles are they facing? NOW WHAT is less about solutions themselves; it's about the hard work and big brains that might just get us there.
