The world has reached a 7.9 billion population which is almost doubled that of 50 years ago. The increasing population has posed a huge pressure on the food system, healthcare system, and more.
Behind this number, it is the every living human being as well as their "rights and choices" that need to be focused. Unlike urban citizens, people in the countryside, especially the aging ones, are recognized as a vulnerable group who often lack of attention from the public. But when empowered by technology, would there be any difference?
On this July 11th World Population Day, we illustrate seven different roles of people in rural areas, who are contributing their strengths to ease the pressure of global food supplies. Technology has been creating diverse opportunities for this disproportionately crowded world.

Even though I don't really know about this big machine, I still take a shine to it because my parents can stay with me instead of working far away from home in the city.
Taking drone into the fields to relieve burden on the local aged, small-scale farmers. It is the way how I strive to get my hometown out of poverty and drives me passionate.
More than coffee, banana, or cacao, the drone is the doorway through which I am accessible to various crops and people from different places I never came across before. I'm thrilled by these adventures that broaden my mind.
Entrepreneurship lives beyond the high-rise. I devote myself in exploring the unmanned ground vehicle to mine the hidden treasures underneath the fertile soil.
