Raising global awareness to promote a long-term change in attitudes and behavior toward our shared environment.
Environmental awareness highlights that the physical environment is fragile and indispensable, and it is in our capacity to fix the problems that threaten it by starting with the most immediate issues.
Environmental Awareness emphasizes 3 areas:
- Affiliation besides Education
Education is not sufficient in itself to convince people to change their habits. Affiliation is a strength that will allow us to join with others to create something more adaptive and more creative. Thus, we propose to replace education with affiliation through the process of the proposed 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 emphasize the reduction of food waste, the encouragement of healthy eating, support for sustainable agriculture, and a “start your own garden” program.
- Perma Gardening
In urban or peripheral areas, community gardens offer an opportunity for the public to re-establish their connection with nature while contributing to erosion control, recycling, and sustainability. Moreover, permagardening can be applied in urban as well as rural areas.
