This is a great geography Key Stage 4 resource as well as one that is useful for youth group settings.
We live in a world in which people’s lives are linked across continents and countries. Much of our food and its ingredients travel long distances before we put it on our plate.
But what do we know about its impact on people and our planet? Food production today has significant impact on our environment, including climate change and resource depletion, as well as on the lives of all those involved in the different stages of production. Global challenges such as social inequalities and poverty are closely related to the global food system. But are individual actions of ethically minded consumers enough, given the complexity of globalization? Does knowing where our food comes from give us the opportunity to contribute to addressing those challenges rather than reinforcing them?
This toolkit can support you in creating the space to address these and other questions relating to food, sustainability and the future.
