Ser conscientes del impacto de nuestro modelo de consumo en el norte global en los sistemas de vida, tierra y agua en otras partes del mundo y cómo está reduciendo la biodiversidad global, tanto en el norte global como en el sur.
The learners identify different “global food products” that are commonly consumed in their country and produced in different countries in different continents (both in the global north and south). They research how this product is grown, in which places, with what seeds, etc. and the impacts it has in the natural habitats and their local communities; how they “travel” to their local supermarket, etc.
Results are shared and learners discuss the implications in terms of sustainability, both environmental and social (e.g. limits, structural flaws, change needs). Learners discuss in small groups opportunities to contribute to improvements in the chain (both production, distribution and consumption) that could tackle some of these issues and what conditions should change.
