08 – Lectures about sustainable food systems to be given by the students in schools
The output refers to the activity ‘Lectures in Schools’ organized in all SUSPLUS partner countries in Feb-Apr 2018, involving university students and secondary schools classes. Selected students prepared lectures in topics covering various aspects of the sustainable food systems, to present, explain and share them with school pupils.
Under the heading of Sustainable Food Systems, students chose a variety of topics for their lectures, such as organic food, food production strategies and labels, environmental issues, water footprint, role and functions of soil, meat consumption, food and myth, diet sustainability, superfoods, food waste, slow food and many others.
Willing to avoid formal lectures, many students used innovative methods of teaching such as storytelling, video playing, tasting products, small group activities.
In the effect, this project output contains both the presentations on various sustainability aspects, but also syllabuses of interactive workshops carried out in schools.
