While large parts of society are increasingly concerned with the way we produce and consume food, the topic of sustainable food chains and healthy diets appears to be missing in the curricula of most schools. However, dietary habits start to develop at an early age. The FoodShift Pathways project aims to provide students and their teachers with learning materials that show different pathways to innovative solutions for how the food system can become more sustainable, in order to feed a growing global population.

The FoodShift Pathways kick-off meeting took place in the premises of Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, on 10th and 11th of October 2022. For the first time, the consortium met in person – with some researchers joining online –  to discuss important initial steps of the project. The meeting agenda included presentations of the project partners, an overview of the work packages and dissemination activities.

The six project partners, operating in six different European countries, have complementary experiences in fields ranging from interactive video production to food system assessment and innovation and pedagogical learning approaches, offering valuable expertise for the project. The project started in September 2022 and will continue until August 2025.
