Faced with climate change, the precariousness of farmers and growing inequalities, malnutrition and obesity problems, food systems must evolve towards more sustainability.
The objective of the project is the production of a teaching toolkit to teach local and sustainable food systems (LSFS), intended for teachers and trainers in agricultural technical education.
The partners of the EducLocalFOOD project have carried out two comparative analyses, one on LSFS and the other on innovative pedagogical practices and a diagnosis of the needed tools for teaching LSFS. These productions were a prerequisite for the teaching toolkit, designed mainly in the form of modules, which is online on the project website.
The EducLocalFOOD project is an Erasmus + project which is part of the key action “cooperation and innovation for good practices” and in the field of “strategic partnerships for vocational education and training”.
The EducLocalFOOD project brings together five European partners: the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences of Vienna (Austria), the University of Lisbon (Portugal), the University of Maribor (Slovenia), the European Landscape Observatory (Italy) and CEZ-Bergerie nationale (France) and more particularly its Agricultures and Transitions department as technical, financial and administrative coordinator.
