Sustainability & Food

Food Justice and Sustainability

The One World Centre in Dundee received an £8,000 grant awarded through the Tesco Bags of Help initiative and administered by Groundwork UK working with Greenspace Scotland. This enabled a partnership approach to be developed involving the local YMCA, Grove Academy, Eastern Primary School and a professional artist.

The One World Centre is keen to explore innovative ways to engage young people in important questions of global justice including where our food comes from, who controls the supply of food globally and why some are denied access to food.

Sustainability & Food

The project has provided the opportunity for pupils to learn about the environment, sustainability and food justice in an outdoor garden space.

As a first stage the project has seen the pupils design and create a mural and pallet garden at the YMCA in Broughty Ferry, Dundee. The mural depicts images of plants and flowers native to the area, alongside representations of locally grown food.
