Last week Year 8 concluded a project called “Feed Biodiversity”, proposed by the “Coop Alleanza” association through two meetings, one in class and one at a Coop supermarket.

Crops transform the environment around us to bring products to the supermarket and to our tables. We often don’t know the origin and the production chains of these products. How do we manage to keep the needs of human consumption and environmental sustainability together? Knowledge of the agricultural world and its cycles can help us guide individual daily choices. Labels, if read consciously, can become the compass through which we can rebalance our relationship with nature and preserve biodiversity.

The aim of the project  was to stimulate responsible choices in children through brain storming and cooperative learning, as well as teach them how safeguarding biodiversity is a fundamental requirement for the survival of our planet!
