Links to educational materials

This section is for posting links to materials that can be used for developing educational activities. The source of data should always be noted, so that in case that the information is contested, we can take a look at the original documents.

Feeding Minds, Fighting Hunger

A product of the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), this is already translated into a number of languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, Farsi, French, Greek, Bahasa Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Kiswahili). FMFH is an international classroom for exploring the problems of hunger, malnutrition and food insecurity. Feeding Minds, Fighting Hunger is designed to help equip and encourage teachers, students and young people all over the world to actively participate in creating a world free from hunger. You will find lesson modules for teachers, resources and activities for young people and an interactive forum for exchanging information and experiences around the world.
