ThoughtLAB-14: Dead Dirt

October 7, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$10 – $14

Concrete fills the vast open land, fruit, meat and vegetables are 3D printed, and the need for new antibiotics was supplanted by virus technology long ago. It is the year 2050 where Dirt is Dead in our hearts and minds.

News that much of the world’s soils have only five more fertile harvests remaining is met largely with indifference. Surely technology will save us?

However, one world government is concerned and appoints you leader of its ‘Soil Army’. With your panel of experts, it is your task to imagine how we will reconnect citizens to the soil. Can you save our soil and with it, everyone on Earth?

Event facilitated by Maxine McKew, Honorary Fellow, Melbourne School of Education and author of the MUP publication, Class Act.
