SUSDI, Sustainable Diets


A good diet for you and for the Earth has to be healthy and sustainable. The sustainability of a diet depends on where in the world you are. Sustainable Diets (SUSDI) helps your students to design good diets for them and for the planet.

Erasmus KA2 2018-1-ES01-KA229-050651 SUSDI (Sustainable diets) is a project involving four secondary schools from the EU: INS Sabadell, Agrupamento de Escolas Trigal de Santa Maria, Bundesgymnasium und Bundesrealgymnasium Baden, Gymnázium Jána Chalupku v Brezne. Teaching-learning materials created at SUSDI use IBSE (Inquiry-Based Science Education) and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) approaches.

The project aims to:

  • Present the topic of healthy diet to secondary students in an innovative way using the methodology of IBSE (Inquiry-Based Science Education), with an interdisciplinary STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) approach.
  • Make students aware of the global warming challenge, and that they can be part of solution to this.
  • Create sustainable diets collaboratively among partners from different countries.
  • Enable students to implement the solutions created by them in their schools and local environment.
  • Share the results and outcomes of the project with other stakeholders.
