Project overview

Public awareness of the importance of sustainable and healthy nutrition is on the rise and the impact that consumers can have is significant. But translating this willingness into simple every day actions isn’t always easy. There is no shortage of knowledge available, but it is dispersed and sometimes inaccessible. Individuals also need the skills and confidence to put their knowledge into practice.  

Supported by the Engagement Migros development fund and the Swiss Federal Office for Agriculture, Foodways is developing the project “My Food Skills”: an initiative and platform for practical materials and activities to support young people to navigate the information jungle and reconnect with fresh, healthy and sustainable everyday food.

To achieve this, the project will use a “Design Thinking” approach to develop a strong understanding of the target group’s current habits, challenges and priorities. We will also work closely with a wide range of partners across the food, nutrition and sustainability landscape to map existing knowledge and initiatives, identify synergies and promote effective collaboration. 

Have we whet your appetite?
