Hungry for Change: Food, Ethics and Sustainability
Four to Six-Session Coursebook from Northwest Earth Institute
What we eat matters—the food choices we make everyday have an impact on our planet. Hungry for Change helps participants explore the true meaning of the phrase “you are what you eat.” Learn about our roles as both consumers and as creators—of food, of systems, and of the world we live in. Discuss how food choices have an impact on a range of issues, including ecosystem health, factory and farm worker treatment, and our global economy. Participants create personal action plans and discover how to create a healthy food environment.
Sample Discussion Questions
- Can organic farming feed the world? Why or why not?
- What “seeds” do you or could you plant for a more just and sustainable world?
- Does the manner in which animals are raised and slaughtered matter to you? Elaborate.
FIC is honored to collaborate with the Northwest Earth Institute (NWEI) by offering these coursebooks in our bookstore. NWEI is a non-profit organization that inspires people to take responsibility for Earth. They do this, in part, by engaging communities, workplaces, and campuses about their role and responsibility to the planet with discussion courses and workbooks. See the other discussion books we offer at the Games & Teaching Aids page.
NWEI’s self-led discussion courses are designed to spark shared learning, shared stories, and shared action. Each course book also includes tips and guidelines to help facilitators organize a course. This course is available in both print and ebook.
