FOODCARE – Mindful nutritional behaviour and positive culinary trends for life, work and planet improvement

At the primary school level, children are embedded in courses that, inter alia, show them good food produce and production. However, at a later age, people are in most cases “left alone” and seduced by fast food, food with low nutritional value. As the world changes at a constantly increasing pace, new trends come up in many fields, including in the food industry. Statistics show the fastest nutrition trends go towards vegetarian and vegan food, but low carb and keto grow of importance also from a health point of view. Still, not enough people know the difference, impact, and consequences of such diets to their bodies, even to their offspring, and any life-improving aspects that can help them regarding their direct and long-term well-being. Finally, our eating habits go very often hand in hand with food waste. It belongs to today’s important issues we need to solve.

This project elaborates on a learning concept applying micro-credentials for particularly non-formal and informal learning settings of young adults mainly dealing with new culinary trends, environmental-friendly food, and measures that help avoid food waste, as well as matching innovative didactic material for youth workers and learning facilitators. These results are embedded in activities that can innovatively address our target groups: for instance TikTok-style videos, Instagram nano-learning messages, and activities.
