Young Food Entrepreneurs

Young Food Entrepreneurs is a schools based project supporting young people to explore food, sustainability and enterprise.  

Young people with passion, skills, knowledge and experience will be at the heart of a thriving food culture, a developing food industry and happy, healthy communities - key elements in achieving our Good Food Nation ambitions.  This project develops pathways and opportunities for young people to develop such attributes and dispositions through a series of practical tasks and engagement with local networks of people including businesses and community groups.  

 

Young Food Entrepreneurs benefits young people aged 11-15 years and their teachers, head teachers, CLD Practitioners and Youth & Children's Workers. It offers schools and pupils a framework to: 

  • explore their local opportunities connected to food
  • connect with people working in our food systems
  • use sustainable food as a context for learning and interdisciplinary development
  • better understand the complexity of sustainable development and Learning for Sustainability processes 

It is particularly relevant for those leading on Enterprise, Green Careers, Skills for Work and Life, Learning for Sustainability and Good Food Nation initiatives. 

Four secondary schools from three local authorities have already taken part and we are very excited to be recruiting schools for the next presentation.
