On September 10th I presented the Food Sustainability Index (FSI) during a webinar on teaching the complexity of food sustainability. The webinar explored how to introduce the FSI EDU toolkit in university curricula.
Teaching food sustainability
Teaching sustainability in higher education is not an easy task, and the concept itself risks to remain abstract given its complexity. Students may also face difficulties in grasping its interconnected nature, even when referring to the Sustainable Development Goals.
The webinar presented a new teaching approach and an educational tool (FSI EDU toolkit) developed on the basis of the FSI and targeted at both professors and instructors, linking theory and practical exercises for a broader understanding of the complexity of food sustainability. It can be implemented in undergraduate and graduate settings, in both online and face-to-face classes.
The webinar underlined the principles to develop a new pedagogy for teaching the complexity of food sustainability in higher education curricula.
