by Gunter's Fables

Hunger and poverty are two of the worlds most significant issues. Arable land is becoming scarce, and our water supply is fragile at best. This Fable suggests that we farm in "3D" by utilising all space available as well as the ocean to grow food. Let's return to the sea for the cultivation of protein and design lasting solutions that will address the most pressing problems of our time!

This Fable was inspired by Ronald Osinga. He advanced and substantiated the argument that large-scale cultivation of sea lettuce can help reduce acidification of the oceans and help solve the global food supply problem, as a ‘marine garden’ of 180,000 square kilometres could provide enough protein to feed the entire world population.

Gunters Fables are structured to include the following learning guides and categories: Did you Know, Think about it, Teachers and Parents Guide, Academic Knowledge, Emotional Intelligence, The Arts, Systems: Making the Connections, Capacity to Implement and who the Fable is Inspired By!
