Everyone needs to get places, whether it be for that post-exam holiday to Bali or just getting to uni every day. We would all be much fitter if it wasn’t around but it would also mean that we couldn’t eat smashed avo on rye every Saturday for brunch.

Climate change and the growing global population are limiting the number of viable crops we can grow worldwide.

From improved conditions for livestock to modification of plant DNA, global agriculture needs fresh, innovative ideas to improve food security for our future.
