The Conscious Consumers project enables young people to explore topical issues that span the boundaries of agriculture, food and society. Focussing on three topics (plant-based diets, food miles and personalised nutrition) use the resources to consider what it means to be a conscious consumer and think about how the choices we make everyday impact on the environment and our wellbeing.
Who is it for?
This project is open to independent learners and schools and we invite young people aged 13 – 19 and teachers to download the PowerPoint presentations and activity documents for free. While the resources were made with year 9 PSHE students in mind, we feel the project is of general interest to young people and in a school setting, would make a valuable addition to several areas of the curriculum.
The Conscious Consumers project was only made possible with funding from the Chadacre Agricultural Trust and by working in partnership with some of our supporters. We joined forces with the Science, Art and Writing (SAW) Trust,the Youth STEMM Award (YSA) and Linking Environment And Farming (LEAF) Education. We are very grateful to all involved!
