Food is about more than nutrition—it’s also about community, economic justice, livelihoods, public health, nature and the climate. Swinehart will introduce participants to techniques for teaching about food issues in an integrative way, including a role-play activity that focuses on La Via Campesina, one of the world’s largest social movements representing 200 million farmers globally.
This 90-minute workshop is intended for teachers, non-formal educators, and ASU students who are interested in sustainability education and food system issues.
To really confront the climate crisis, we need to think differently, build differently, and teach differently. A People’s Curriculum for the Earth is an educator’s toolkit for our times.
