FAct! or Food Actions! is a programme that addresses major food challenges by exploring the health and environmental aspects of eating habits. The project has developed and tested a self-learning workbook for adults wishing to learn how to adopt more sustainable food habits.
The workbook was designed to empower adults to make decisions based on not only what is good for them but also what is good for the planet. It is available in six languages: English, German, Hungarian, Italian, Spanish and Basque, and covers 3 main topics: food waste, climate and environment, and food and health.
This pilot project managed to recruit 264 households to test the programme. The results showed that more than half of the participants made behaviour changes that they have established as new habits. The project also had a hugely successful media reach, reaching close to 200,000 recipients via social media and a further half a million through mass media in Hungary.
GAP International acts as the lead applicant of the project, and 4 of its member organisations with prior experience working together are the project’s partners:
The project was funded by EU within the Erasmus+ programme KA2 SP- Cooperation and Innovation projects – Adult Education, by the Swedish National Agency. You can read more on the Erasmus+ projects website.
