About the ‘Open School’ Lab


The Athens FoodSHIFT Accelerator Lab focuses on social innovation by engaging schools in (re-) connecting young people with land and nature as well as using summer courses to promote healthy eating and plant based foods.

 

It uses community empowerment providing hands-on learning opportunities for the food-smart citizens of tomorrow and strengthens the link between urban and agricultural communities by developing the dialogue between schools and food actor networks. It will also work on solutions for using leftovers in school canteens and kitchens.
