In honour of the World Food Day, 2014 Trudeau Fellow Evan Fraser is launching a kickstarter campaign to release his graphic novel entitled #foodcrisis.

Aiming to connect with senior high school or lower-year university students, #foodcrisis is a fictionalized account of the possible collapse of the world’s agricultural system. Set in the year 2025, the story weaves together gripping story-lines about land grabs, rising food prices, inequality, climate change, and more. The first three episodes are available here: #foodcrisis.

This educational and outreach initiative is part of Evan Fraser'sTrudeau Project.

Also here are the links to three op-eds written by Evan on the Food crisis topic:
