Nine billion people will populate the world in 2050. The challenge to feed this population without destroying the environment is of most critical importance. We, as plant scientists and responsible citizens not only can, but have the moral duty to actively contribute to the solution for the problem. The proposed summer school course aims at showing and developing the possibilities we have to achieve this goal.
