Food Waste

Producers, sellers, and consumers waste tons of food. John Oliver discusses the shocking amount of food we don’t eat.

Food waste is a tragedy that we all know happens, but the economic system does not work efficiently to maximize the global food production (Disclaimer: it is HBO's John Oliver, so there is some language and references that might not be appropriate for all audiences).

Geographical Association - Exploring the Geography of Food

Geographical Association - Exploring the Geography of Food | Geography Food Security | Scoop.it

Food is a basic human need, and right. The production, acquisition and consumption of food occupies everyone to some extent, and connects everyone with the environment, the water cycle, interdependence, global trade and aid, and the changing nature and location of industry. This family of courses explores the development of the coming 'perfect storm' and the relationships between food and the geography curriculum.

Synthetic fertilizer provides most of the nitrogen that makes soil fertile worldwide. Almost half the nitrogen is then harvested with crops; the rest is lost through leaching, erosion, and emissions.

The geography of my stuff

The geography of my stuff | Geography Food Security | Scoop.it

This unit of work focuses upon the interconnections and inter-relationships that link teenage consumers living in the UK with societies and environments overseas (where the goods they purchase are made). As well as explaining how these connections work - and why they have come into being - the unit introduces students for the first time to some of the moral, ethical and environmental issues that are associated with the global trade in consumer goods (including child labour and food miles).

Plenty of hands-on examples and case studies are provided that will help teachers deliver these themes in an accessible and interactive way. Students will gain a first impression of some key ideas relating to retail land use from convenience stores to retail parks.

Looks terrific for the new National Curriculum 'Geographies of Interconnections' for Yr 9.

Conversation on social media can be remarkably self-absorbed (and yes, I find this highly entertaining).
