About this Event

This event is part of a public engagement programme funded by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute centred on growing food in school gardens to support the wellbeing, informed activism and democratic participation of young people across educational sectors. The Programme has the following aims:

• Raise awareness of the ecological, cultural, economic and social dimensions of food as a global sustainability issue, and the role of young people as responsible producers and consumers.

• Engage young people in philosophical inquiry to identify and extend opportunities for teaching, learning and assessment about healthy food and sustainability in the school gardens.

• Generate a shared action plan for scaling-up school gardens across policy, research and practice.

First of a series of 4 seminars, this event aims to bring together policy-makers, practitioners, teacher educators and members of voluntary organisations to map the opportunities and create synergies for developing food gardens in schools. The long-term ambition of this proposal is to build a strategy framework seeking to develop capacity in the school and the community to support children and young people to develop sustainable approaches to food production and waste, while making a direct contribution to climate justice, equity and well-being.
