The Year of Food and Farming
Starting in September 2007

Here are the objectives:
  • To improve the understanding of young people, their parents and teachers, of the food chain and the role played by farming.
  • To develop curriculum materials and projects on food and farming which can be used in schools both during and beyond the Year.
  • To increase links between schools, farmers and food producers, which will be sustainable well beyond the Year.
  • To raise awareness of the contribution food can make to a healthy lifestyle, and within this increase the understanding amongst young people of what constitutes a healthy and balanced diet.
  • To raise awareness of the career opportunities in the food and farming industries.
  • To increase understanding of the importance of the countryside and environmental issues related to food and farming.
Sounds good !
