Can you beat the system?

On Friday, we worked in teams to learn more about the role of the global food market, multinational companies, food and cash crops, and experience the challenges small scale farmers face first hand.

This included access to land, lack of resources, food price rises and changes to the climate.

The pupils also learned how the actions of governments, multinational companies and farmers themselves can make the system work better for everyone.

It was brilliant to see how much you all enjoyed yourselves as well as learning more about where your food comes from (in relation to our Food for Thought topic).
