The 7th UGM DREaM International Summer Program 2015 is proudly organized by Office of International Affairs (OIA) of Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), with relentless support and contribution of student volunteers. The 7th UGM DREaM International Student Summer Program 2015 highlights “food security” as the main topic. This world is facing so many problems these days, and food has been under the spotlight. We cannot rely on how we eat today forever because we have a crisis in global food reserves. This issue is related to many things in the process, including global health and fairness in management. Food efficieny that has big roles for enviromental health, economic vitality, also social equity and human health may sound complicated but not an impossible thing to do. Furthermore, even though many countries have been concerning food security, the world seems to need a lot more contributions. In this case, young generation is needed because we believe that the young generation has fresh ideas. Through the 7th UGM DREaM International Summer Program 2015, students from all over the world can learn about food security and make a real act in society. Young generation can be innovators for solutions of the food issue and inspire others to make a better world for us and for our future generations.
