Eat Wise: Educating for a Healthy and Sustainable Diet
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Over the last years , diet has changed considerably in Euopean countries. There is a new concern about diet that didn´t exist before: people can study new degrees and get jobs related to diet, you can find a cooking programme in every TV channel and everybody recognises names of groceries that were totally unkown not long ago. However, this change has not only been for good, new deseases related to food like food alergies and obesity, new doubts that affect food origine and quality and new problems like food waste and getting rid of litter have appeared on stage. Whenever there is a change in society, school must take up the responsability to educate pupils in that change. With this project we pretend to deal with various important challenges: - First, to address a hot topic like healthy diet and sustainable food. The project will provide students a practical learning that will help them become responsable citizens who compromise towards a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Pupils will learn about healthy diet, they will see the differences between ingredients and nutrients, they will understand better how their body works and what it needs to avoid certain deseases. Through this project we will start educating students in a wise consumption of food so they can better know what they have to take on acount for a healthy and sustainable shopping. We will also make them aware of the amount of food they usually waste as well as the litter they produce and will help them deal with that problem. - Second, to do it through an up-to-date methodolgical approach that gathers formal, non- formal and informal learning to develop all kinds of competences, focuses on a global work avoiding subject division and passive learning and that is closer to enterprising research than to a formal class. This active learning will include: researching ( reading, interviewing, visiting facilities, taking part in work shops...), organising information ( using srveys, charts, graphs, ...) , getting to conclusions ( producing hand outs, flyiers, guides...) , present their work ( using websites, ppt, prezi, written data...) and evaluating results ( surveys,meetings, self evaluation...). - Next, to add an extra value by working at the same time with other European schools so we have a wider overview and we can compare, learn from each other and live different situations showing on one hand, that distance is not a handicap for a cooperative work and on the other hand, the multiple benefits ( educational and personal) of travelling and working hand to hand with european mates. - Last, to make good use of any means at hand to achieve our objectives: community, visits, ict, workshops,books....This will guarantee the mix of formal non- formal and informal learning, will help develop basic and transversal skills and will strengthen links with community members and associations. With this project we expect pupils and families to acquire some good habits related to diet and food consumption. We understand that this is a long term objective that needs continus work, that is why, even when the project is finished, schools´ compromise towards health and sustainability will last and even increase by making of it a course of action that will somehow define our institutions..
