WeValueFood

WeValueFood

WeValueFood (3 year project) will enhance consumer health and support the European agrifood economy by improving future generations’ knowledge of, and engagement with, food.

Novel approaches will be used to engage with next generation audiences: students from primary school to university. Following a pan-European inventory of current tools and resources; novel engagement and education approaches (e.g. gamification, txokos, food interest groups/collectives, “twinning”, science meets food) will be used to produce our future food champions who will communicate food values through digital media platform(s) of their choosing. WeValueFood will be supported by a pan European network of high profile “food stars” and stakeholders. Industry will “relearn” to engage with our youth on food values. The project will be scaled-up across Europe, targeting regions where a greater engagement and understanding of food is needed in order for the next generations to make the best choices of the food they eat.

ChATFood

ChATFood is a decision support system that was developed as a part of WeValueFood. It was developed to assist educators like you in selecting tools for engaging young people with food.
