Welcome to Module 6 of your Open Online Course!!
In this module we will help you to develop your competencies in order to provide your students an opportunity to understand the impact of food consumption patterns on climate change and become more acquainted with the concept of SUSTAINABLE FOOD.
This module can guide you as a secondary teacher as you plan content about sustainable food into your teaching. The guiding principle is Think global, Act local!
