Feeding minds to fight hunger



Ten years ago a group of international organizations spearheaded by FAO launched a global initiative to create greater awareness and understanding in young people about the causes and effects of hunger, poverty and malnutrition. 'Feeding Minds, Fighting Hunger' is an online classroom for young people and their teachers. The FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department joined by developing Wonders of the Oceans, a set of lessons for 8-12 year olds to learn the importance of conserving our aquatic resources through responsible fisheries and aquaculture and about the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries.
