Sustainability through food to empower youth


Learning the universal value of food

Seeds is the educational hub of Barilla Foundation, intended to promote high quality education and contribute to the development of a sustainability culture, starting with food.
Improving skills in the area of food and environmental sustainability first of all requires adequate knowledge to be provided for people to understand the extent and implications of the nutritional, social, economic and environmental challenges of our time.

This commitment is even more interesting and fruitful if it is addressed to the younger generations, who are now showing the greatest ever sensitivity and attention to the issue of sustainability, but displaying limited knowledge of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

We therefore need to provide them with the tools to understand the role they can play in helping to reach this goal, and the role of food in this challenge.

Also, Barilla Foundation is leader of the project SkillED, a 3-year (2020 - 2023) international Erasmus + project it aims at building a set of certified competences for teaching food and environmental sustainability. The project involves 35 high school teachers and more than 250 students, from Italy, Greece, Lithuania and Spain, and, based on ECVET methodology, will help to create a new set of skills to teach sustainability through food and food related themes.

Don’t miss We, the food, the Planet the digital game-based learning activity.

It allows players to dialogue with our Planet to understand the impact of human activities on the environment, starting with food. We, the food, the Planet provides quizzes and interactive games, and players can discover global problems and practical solutions that are both healthy for humans and respectful of the planet.
