Where does my food come from? What does organic mean? Why should we recycle? These are a few of the questions answered in a joint venture with the European Commission’s DG Agriculture. At the end of this project, we provided creative tools for schools to answer very crucial agricultural questions. Through animations and worksheets, secondary school children from all 28 member states, can appreciate the impact that agriculture has on our daily lives.

But how do you get a classroom full of children between 11 to 15 years old interested in farming and the environment? We’ve had to combine our creative minds together with the knowledge of experts in the field to come up with a concept that is easy to use and can be adapted to fit school requirements. The added challenge was to ensure that all language versions across this big project had the same high standards for accuracy and accessibility.

In the framework of three modules covering food, the environment and countryside, we created a 3d animated video, slideshow, interactive map and ready-to-print file. This provided teachers with many tools to engage students in a memorable and fun way. Among the printable files were maps, worksheets, dividers and suitcases in all 23 languages.
