Featured Monthly Resource
Each month we will be sharing a lesson plan and activity linked to our programmes and focus for the month aligned to significant days, like Earth Day. This gives an opportunity for teachers to engage with the day even if they cannot do so on the specific day as these issues year-round.
This month's lesson, in honour of World Vegan Day, is from the 'Food Sovereignty' transition year micro-module, a part of the 'Seeding Sustainability' programme. Veganism is a lifestyle that excludes all animal products and attempts to limit the exploitation of animals as much as possible. This lesson encourages students to examine the argument of plant-based diets through imagining the whole world as vegan. It aims to connect food choice to issues such as food scarcity and security, sustainable use of resources and poverty.
