Age 14-16

Package for age 14-16

By teaching young students about food waste in a fun and innovative way they acquire the right tools to help change the future of our planet. So we have developed an educational package for students aged 14-16 with material specifically focused on food waste. How does it occur, what is it and what do we do to reduce it?

Within the package you'll get answers to the most commonly asked food waste questions, hands on experience with food waste in your community and useful knowledge about how best to handle food waste. The package consists of exercises, articles, cases, quizzes and much more that allows the students to work creatively with a global issue that concerns everyone. 

After having worked with the materials the student will have a wide knowledge of how to reduce food waste at home, come up with ways to make a difference and evaluate what they have learned and where to go to from here.

You can choose to work with everything or mix and match.

Food supply chain

Category: Where does food come from?

Duration: 60 min

The journey that food goes on from production to table is called the food supply chain.

Nowadays, food is transported over longer distances across continents. This means end consumers are disconnected from the source and the supply chain becomes longer and more fragmented. When learning about food waste and loss it is essential to understand where the food originally comes from.

Clear your fridge

Duration: Introduction: 15 min. Exercise duration: a week or more.

Document your food waste

Category: Food waste at home

Duration: Introduction: 15 min. Exercise duration: a week or more.

A great way to start a project or course around food waste.

This exercise is about making students (and their families) aware that most food waste happens at home.

This is the easiest of the two home exercises. It doesn't require the family to change habits at all and it doesn’t need as much effort as the "Clear your fridge"-competition.
