The Map Your Meal International Summer School on ‘Creating a Sustainable Alternative to the current global food system’ is inviting young people to come together and jointly explore how the global food system works. Participation is fully funded. Deadline to apply is April 10th. Successful participants will be informed by April 15th.
The event is organised by Future Worlds Center (FWC) an innovative non-profit initiative of social entrepreneurs using a model of horizontal entrepreneurial management. Organisers aim to bring together 30 young people from Europe and the Global South to enhance their understanding of the global food system and its interconnectedness, exchange learning practices and develop potential future collaborations.
The Summer School will include interactive workshop sessions exploring the key concepts of Global Education within the context of the Sustainable Development Goals, sessions with invited guest speakers on food security and food sovereignty, as well as visits to local farms or other sustainable agricultural projects. The summer school will also offer the space for participants to share their own experiences and learning, to develop new links between those active in global learning settings and those involved in sustainable agricultural projects, as well as provide sufficient space for participants to develop their own plans for future actions.
- young people between between 18 and 30;
- involved in youth work and youth-related activities;
- and/or active in alternative/ sustainable food and agricultural initiatives;
