Whether you’re talking about solving a problem at work or a global issue like growing enough food for our growing population, it’s tough for just one person to make a big difference. But when we work together, we can make a bigger impact.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
By definition, collaboration is the act of working with someone to produce or create something. In agriculture, farmers, nonprofits, organizations, universities and many others collaborate to help create new solutions for a more sustainable food system. Partnering with others globally brings together diverse perspectives, in order to develop a wide range of solutions.
WHY SHOULD WE CARE?
With the world population expected to reach 9.6 billion by 2050, partnering to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges is increasingly important. Overcoming the challenges that arise from a growing global population requires input from all of us, and the lifestyle choices we all make going forward can affect the lives of our families and our planet.

WHAT CAN WE ALL DO TO HELP?
The more people with diverse perspectives work together, the more possibilities for creative solutions. Both individuals and organizations should look for opportunities to work with others to reach common goals. Help raise awareness about the challenges facing our planet, get involved in your local government, volunteer your time, and donate to charities that support conserving our natural resources.
