EUKI project on sustainable nutrition "Bringing Climate Action to the Table"
Raising awareness of sustainable nutrition through gamified and participatory activities in Spain, Slovenia and Greece.
Our friends from the Slovenian NGO Umanotera organize a series of conferences and short online events, among which the first topic is Organic and healthy food - how to recognize it? which will be held on May 31 from 10 to 11:15 (CET), related to ecologically acceptable food.

Since food production contributes up to 37 percent of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, changes in individual diets play a key role in the fight against climate change. However, this potential remains largely untapped in the project countries: surveys have shown that while 94 percent of Spaniards, Slovenians and Greeks consider climate change a serious problem, only 16 percent of them eat a sustainable diet.
The project team encourages the citizens of Spain (Catalonia), Slovenia and Greece (Central Macedonia) to make more informed and responsible food choices. It does this by offering gamified and participatory activities that are tailored to different target groups. First, it reaches young people through digital and physical food-themed escape room games. Second, it provides training and tools for educators to enable them to implement food-related activities. Finally, he invites parents, guardians, educators and the interested public to conferences where they can learn about and reflect on sustainable food consumption. With these activities, the project partners reach and sensitize 40,000 citizens, encouraging them to get involved in the problems of the food system and adopt a more climate-friendly diet, thus contributing to a significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
