Today, more than ever, young people are growing up in an urbanised society. Worldwide, half of the population lives in a city. How do cities manage to feed their inhabitants? Although there is no agriculture or livestock farming in the city, more than 1.5 million breakfasts, lunches and dinners are prepared in Antwerp alone every day. Where does that food come from? How does it end up on our plate? And what do we do with all of the waste: not only the packaging waste, but also the food surpluses and our own excrement?
The students, together with a guide, will discover how food leaves a trail in the city. A trail that starts somewhere in the countryside, travels via the port and access roads, through streams and waterways, to end up at markets and supermarkets, or cafés, inns, restaurants and snack bars.
By means of the ‘visible thinking’ learning method, the curiosity of the students is stimulated. This learning method is aimed at making pupils observe things for longer and think more critically.
