Sustainable Food: Schools Based Action Research Inquiry

Robert Rogerson, Sue Sadler

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

    Abstract

    This project was concerned with investigating the role of schools in bringing about more sustainable communities; in particular, how learning in schools could spill over into action in communities. It explored the skills, knowledge and processes of learning and action that are most effective in contributing to sustainable communities; the role children and young people can play as agents of change in this process; and how schools might further their role as community catalysts. The primary academic contribution of this research has been to develop a better understanding of what forms of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) are most likely to stimulate action by children, families, and schools in their wider community. This case study provides evidence of different approaches to ESD which can help develop more sustainable food habits in communities.
