Menu for Change International Forum

By 2050 our world will have to feed 10 billion people although it is already struggling with a changing climate and questionable economic and political paradigms. How can it be done without worsening living conditions of people, and causing further depletion of natural resources?

We are wondering what is happening to our world, while we know that as citizens of economically developed countries we consume by far most of its resources and are making the world follow our path.

Let’s ask how can we regenerate the Planet and societies. Let´s look for what can help us embracing complexities, in order to be able to bring positive changes. The international Forum Menu for Change will gather European Eco-School teachers and civil society representatives to think and experience together how to work with big questions of our times and integrate them in our daily practice of education and awareness raising.
