Our future generation of world leaders is facing the challenge of ‘how to fight hunger through science’ and will get the opportunity to talk to current world leaders, companies and societal organisations. Classes and individual students work with online and offline course materials to accept the challenge of how to get hunger out of the world in an interdisciplinary manner. The ideas that high school students and higher education students obtain here, a selective group of students will take to the Global Youth Institute in the United States in October 2018. Here they talk to other youths and world leaders from the rest of the world on the topic of the world food question, ‘to fight hunger through science’.
