Special Offer for Schools from September 2020 to February 2021. 

We are glad to invite your school for Crossing Borders (CB) school workshop under the project Food for Thought funded by Nordic Culture Point.  

 The main purpose of the project is to strengthen young people’s knowledge and develop skills about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially with focus on SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being and SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production.   

This project is motivated by CB strong ambition to contribute toward the achievement of the 2030 global agenda. The project motivation also stems from CB strong belief in the crucial role of education as the most suitable space toward the inclusion of young people, parents, educators, schools and the whole community to contribute to the SDGS Agenda.  

The workshops will be developed, designed and run by CB international facilitators with various background: students of Global Nutrition and Health, Global Migration Studies, Environmental experts, Eco entrepreneurs, non-formal educators and trainers.   

Using Food for Though workshop model students will develop skills to better understand themselves, society, and the wider world. That is how we empower young people to become more active and take responsibility in the world they live in both locally and globally.
