FOOD FOR THOUGHT, Trainings Course for Multipliers

19-27.05.2022 Magnet House, Dositeja Obradovica 34, Veliki Gaj (Serbia)

Our daily consumer choices affect not only our own lives and well-being, as well as the people and the world around us. In many countries the market for ethically and sustainably produced food products has grown, and the same issues have gained greater visibility for example in the clothing industry. Not all people, however, are equally involved in these developments.

The aim of this project is to promote well-being and active citizenship and make the participants challenge stereotypes and norms about gender and class so that they are empowered to live their lives in a fuller and more free way, have greater respect for other ways of life, and make more informed consumer choices.


The objectives of the project are:

  • To give an introduction to the social construction of gender and how class and gender
    intersect.
  • To give an introduction to sustainable food production and consumption and its societal
    benefits.
  • To give an introduction to how gender and class affect consumption.
  • To initiate a change in attitudes towards consumption as it relates to gender, class and
    sustainability.
  • To develop life skills, including cooking and sharing responsibilities among members of
    a household (short-term or longterm) with particular attention given to gender norms
    and class differences as they apply to divisions of labour.
  • To promote healthy living by promoting a plant-based diet among young people.
  • To introduce young people coming from disadvantaged background with the tools and
    technics on how to apply lessons learned in their daily lives.
