HISTORY OF FARMING Finding sustenance during prehistoric times that didn’t involve moving from one place to another, hunting and getting to settle down in one place is how agriculture started as a practice. It has been the key source of a region’ dietary needs other than meat. Farming practice maintained equilibrium back when the population was not a huge issue, but it has been stumbling in many ways now. Farming, be it large scale, traditionally on land or small scale, modern in greenhouses and other spaces, is now on the verge of collapsing as an industry. The industry is hinged on local farmers in rural areas where resources and finances are scarce, making it difficult for them to continue the practice and support the entire food supply system on their own. Cooperation on all levels is needed. With technology advancing at a faster pace and alternative methods being invented to maintain a healthy inflow of food, farming in places never thought of before is becoming a possibility. The shift to newer methods of farming from the traditional ones is going to be a big change, can this farming shift be altered physically into dense spaces as easily as any other modern intervention would?

What They Say

Manish Sonal, India

“I was always reluctant in applying to foreign Universities due to my financial constraints. Today I am pursuing my Master’s in a subject which I love and feel more confident about my future.”
Saravanan Yuvaraja, India

“GE Light the Way Concepts for the future of Office Lighting Innovation Challenge Competition was one of my best life time experiences. This challenge had given me a chance to know exactly, what the organization is looking from the innovative student community for creating smart and sustainable world in the future.”
Arlisa Febriani, Indonesia
Winner of the Blue Bag Competition 2015 – Full Scholarship and living costs paid for at Lund University
Arlisa’s story is very unique and proof that given the right opportunity, the greatest ideas will succeed. By developing a revolutionary water cleansing system, she proved that anything is possible. This is great news for her, the people of Jakarta, and quite possibly the rest of the world who live in places with little or no access to clean water!
