Raising global awareness to promote a long term change in attitudes and behaviour toward our shared environment.
Information is the root of change. Raising global awareness to promote a long term shift in attitudes and behaviour toward our shared environment goes through the creation and sharing information of our impact to encourage participation in the protection of natural resources. We need to grow a sense of connection to the natural world to promote an aware and sustainable development.
Environmental Awareness emphasises 3 areas:
- Affiliation besides Education
Education leads to awareness. Awareness empowered with empathy creates affiliation. Who knows, cares and who cares, acts. Affiliation is a strength that will allow us to join with others to create something more adaptive and more creative. Thus, we propose to empower education with affiliation in the course and experience of this exhibition.
By FoodPrint, we understand that the most immediate problem facing us on a daily basis is the secure access to healthy food and food policies. The acuteness of this issue will sharply focus the public’s attention. We aim to emphasise the reduction of food waste, the encouragement of healthy eating, support for sustainable agriculture, and a “start your own garden” programme.
In urban or peripheral areas, community gardens offer an opportunity for the public to re-establish their connection with nature, whilst contributing to erosion control, recycling and sustainability.
