Program: With a starting point in especially Food Diversity, one of the four themes at the foundation of World Food Summit 2018 – Better Food for More People, we will present the Erasmus+ project: A unique and innovative collaboration between primary schools and higher educational institutions in 6 different EU countries. The overall aim of Learn4health is to communicate and mediate a better understanding of food, food education nutrition and health for children and young adults, as well as to develop new strategies where children are placed in concrete hands-on learning contexts and activities in relation to these themes. In Learn4health, the goal is to create new ways to promote the understanding of health, food and nutrition, and especially the understanding of where the food comes from. The projects in Learn4health are primarily directed at students in kindergartens, primary/secondary schools, and at high school levels.

Target Group: Both Learn4health Breakout Sessions are aimed at anyone with an interest in how to develop new initiatives in connection with education, and in the creation of knowledge, information and interest in food, nutrition and health.
