Students will:

  • learn that self-sufficiency in food production varies over time and space (comparing different nationalities),

  • discover the origin of basic ingredients used in our daily food, and to become familiar with the concept of “food miles”,
  • think about why locally produced food has generally a higher nutritional value than the food transported from distant places.
