We Eat Responsibly Menu for Change International Forum in Prague
26-28 January 2018
Thirteen adults and five students travelled all the way to the Czech Republic in order to represent Eco-Schools Malta in the ‘We Eat Responsibly’ International Forum. Students hailed from Gozo Middle School, St Dorothy’s Senior School, St Augustine’s College, St Albert the Great College and San Ġorġ Preca College Ħamrun Secondary School. Educators attending represented a number of other schools from various areas and sections.
The forum titled Menu for Change which took place in Prague from the 26th to the 28th of January brought together delegations from the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Croatia, Latvia, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Malta.
Participants attended and gave active input in various workshops, presentations and debates which also required each country to showcase the projects and ideas the
Eco-Schools committees had come up with and successfully carried out throughout the project. Malta presented various projects amongst which the carob syrup low in sugar and the carob powder as a cocoa replacement which was used to make cakes plus expert advice from MOAM about growing organic food. The overall aim of this project was to encourage sustainable food consumption especialy fresh, local, seasonal and organic whilst looking at the global perspective and create awareness about food wastage, growing your own food, use of palm oil, fair trade products, and the processing, packaging and transport of food.
Though the project has come to an end work on the themes indicated will be continued within schools and through the Eco-Schools programme.
