European Pedadogic and Nutrition 2020
Basically, the project EU-Pe-Nu 2020 is about the pedagogic implementation of the topic nutrition in elementary education. We want to achieve that different types of school from different areas concentrate on nutrition and have an inspiring influence on each other because of the exchange of different perspectives. The expert as well as the educator and the child as the final recipient of our project who is being taught by the ecucators – all connected by home economics.
All the involved schools have dealt with the challenge of unhealthy nutrition of our students for a long time. Healthy nutrition seems to become an international problem which is already “virulent“ during
The detailed needs of the project are diverse. One the one hand healthy nutrition is propagated everywhere. One the other hand healthy food is mostly not part of our every-day-life (e.g. diabetes, overweight, cardiovascular diseases) which leads to the problem of the economy as a whole that a relative minority lives a healthy life whereas the majority of our society does not. As a result, there is individual burden and stress (e.g. diseases) and there is a burden on society as well (e.g. costs of the
health insurance providers).
The aim of this project is the synthesis of several aspects: Research and pedagogic implementation of home economics ascpects.
Both of the grammar schools , Szent Laslo Gymnazium (HUN) and Lycée général et technologique Auguste Béhal (France) work on the above mentioned subjects but lack the necessary multipliers for the pre-school sector in their specialized classes (e.g. biology, chemistry). The BBS
Donnersbergkreis (Germany) and BAFeP 7 (Austria) educate educators who should sensitize children to healthy nutrition at a very young age. At the same time they are lacking highly qualified participants but they have the methodical professional skills.
The BBS Donnersbergkreis as well as the BAFeP 7 Vienna cooperate with a local kindergarten. The “Kindergarten Ritten” in Kirchheimbolanden supports this work. The Zespol Szkol Nr. 1 im. Legioniov Polskich (Poland) provides the household tasks in their specialized classes and will be responsible for the implementation of these household tasks.
All in all, there is a division of responsibility with regard to methological-didactical aspects depending
on the partners‘ competence.
