Secondary Schools Activities

In each territory partners, 5 secondary schools have been identified and involved in project activities, with the exception of Belgium where ACR+ (Co-applicant 8) is working with only 2 schools. Project partners have selected the secondary schools ensuring a balanced participation of target representing different backgrounds and features, in terms of types of schools, locations and social issues.

WORKSHOPS WITH TEACHERSDIDACTIC MODULES WITH STUDENTS

It have been organized 2 workshops per school with teachers to transfer the issues of project, train them and coordinate the activities. Moreover, the training processes of the teachers have been strengthened through “learning by doing” methodology and through their active involvement in all activities, in order to make them able to replicate the experience also after project’s ending.

The workshops contents were been: an overall picture on food waste at local, national, European and global level; interconnection between food waste and other sustainable development issues, such land, water and energy waste; new forms of sustainable and responsible consumption and lifestyle.

After the conclusion of teachers’ training courses, there have been 4 didactic modules with an average participation of 40 students per school. Each module lasted moreover 2/3 hours and has taken place during school time. The Thematic Expert Team leaded the modules supported by the teachers involved and exploiting ICT facilities together with a participatory, inductive methodology. Finally, all material created has been organized in a toolkit in order to make teachers able to replicate the action.

The modules mainly focus on the following topics: basic information and overview on the theme of food waste at local, national, European and global level (with qualitative and quantitative data), and its interrelation with daily and personal behaviors; interconnection between food waste and other sustainable development issues, such land, water and energy waste; new forms of sustainable and responsible consumption and lifestyle.

With the support of experts, students analyze local and global contexts in order to identify concrete actions to reduce food waste and to adopt new sustainable and responsible lifestyle. These suggestions and recommendations constitute the contents of the partners’ local drafts which have merged into The Don’t Waste Our Future Charter 2015, a joint European Manifesto of Young People and Local Authorities to promote Food Waste Reduction and the global Right to Food.
