Farmers 2050

Journey 2050

Journey 2050 is a school-based program that uses timers to adhere to bell schedules; thus, Farmers 2050 was built! It uses the same sustainable agriculture concepts and game-based technology but is intended to be played at home or during school breaks. Students have a chance to discover what it really takes to feed the world. Farmers 2050 allows users to plant crops, raise animals, and craft goods to sell in their local community all the while managing the three pillars of sustainability: environment, economic and social.
