|English||Climate change is a global problem but many of its causes are due to individual lifestyle choices. The Climate Change and Food Security Challenge Badge will raise awareness of how our everyday activities contribute to climate change and how different communities and individuals are already being affected by it, especially in regards to access to water and food. Moreover,young people will learn about the importance of eating healthy food and in adequate quantity, quality and variety. They will learn that many people are not able to access the food they need resulting in hunger and malnutrition.
Young people have an important role to play in addressing the issues of our world and have the enthusiasm and energy to undertake local initiatives and participate in international arenas. The badge curriculum contains activities for young people from 5 to 20 years of age and it is divided into three categories: Our Climate, Our Food and Our World. Each category contains a selection of activities and projects they can carry out to learn more about weather and climate and food and consumer choices. By carrying out these activities young people will be encouraged to take action against global warming, environmental degradation and hunger in the world. The guide will be available in English, French, Spanish and Italian.
This paper is a useful tool for teachers in rural areas and educators on rural development|
