Conscious Consumer Project
The Conscious Consumers Project enables young people to explore topical issues that span the boundaries of agriculture, food, health and society. The workshops focus on three topics; climate change, animal welfare and rewilding. We invite young people to use the resources to consider what it means to be a conscious consumer and think about how the choices we make everyday impact on the environment and our wellbeing.
The workshops are free to download and can be completed as part of a group at school or college or independently at home. Time spent on the resources can count towards a Youth STEMM Award – to find out more or register your interest click here.
“We all have to make choices, particularly around the food we eat and our choices as consumers really do have the power to shape the world we live in. We hope the Conscious Consumers project will help young people feel more confident to evaluate claims made about topical issues and make informed decisions about their own life choices.” Dr Jenni Rant, The SAW Trust.
