SWISS NETWORK FOR COOPERATION ON NUTRITION EDUCATION
Introduction to the project: General Objectives
We approach food as something that is much more than just “stuff to eat.” It is a realm of experience and activity that is shaped by history and the physical environment, but also carries individual memories, interests, and personalities. It is interwoven into all aspects of our lives, and our choices about food affect not only ourselves, but also other people and the earth.
Cooking is a primal human activity. one of the joys of this is exposure to many different cultures, and one of the easiest ways to access this diversity is through food. Simply put, cooking and sharing food is one of the most direct and immediate ways to share culture, heritage, and identity
Our goal is to promote and represent a deeper understanding of the many ways in which food connects us all and to use that understanding to nourish our connections to and through food in order to create a healthier, more equitable, and sustainable world.
1. To promote culinary arts, nutrition, food education, and the global movement of sustainable development.
2. To cooperate with stakeholders, innovators, communities and professionals coming from a private, public, as well as the third sector.
3. To develop projects and educational activities and tools with a focus on food and nutrition.
The programme illustrates the huge challenges and issues of food in the world and serves as a tool to drive prevention and educational activities for different age groups working and coming from a public-private sector. It's designed to be a bridge between a food science, education and cooking - an area that we feel hasn't received enough attention. We are working to create a network of chefs, teachers, nutritionists and food-related professionals to develop a food education platform that supports the delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals. The highest goals is to become an educational organization, form an advocacy group and a knowledge network.
