Based on the motto “Eat local, think global”, EAThink2015 is a three-year project that aims to prepare students to face their role as active global citizens, starting from the choice of what they eat.

Today 800 000 people go hungry every day, while, in the richer countries food is wasted more than ever before.  The current food system has many negative impacts on the environment and health, with political and financial interests often threatening farmers and consumers’ rights.
