On the 19th and 20th of October, the annual meeting of the DELICIOUS Prima Project was held in Carcavelos, Portugal. The consortium gathered to discuss the tasks and milestones achieved in the first 18 months of the project and to plan for the next 18 months. The meeting was a great success, with participants sharing their experiences and insights, and setting new goals for the future. It was very enriching and motivating to reunite after such a long time and be able to share the progress of each Work Package.
During the meeting, the consortium had the opportunity to visit the Carcavelos Marists School, which has been actively involved in the project. The school has a vegetable garden and an animal farm for the children, where they learn about nature, where their food comes from, and how to maintain a sustainable and healthy diet. This hands-on approach to education is an important part of DELICIOUS, which aims to promote sustainable and healthy eating habits among children and their families.
The Carcavelos Marists School embodies the project’s vision by actively engaging children in hands-on learning about the origins of food and the importance of sustainable practices. The school’s vegetable garden and animal farm are nurturing not only plants and animals but also a generation of young minds committed to a healthier and more sustainable future.
As DELICIOUS continues to grow and evolve, it serves as an inspiration to all of us to take a closer look at our food systems and the way we educate our youth about nutrition and sustainability. Together, we can pave the way for a delicious, healthy, and environmentally responsible future.
With another 18 months of work ahead, the consortium is confident that they will be able to achieve their objectives and make a real difference in the lives of children and their families. By promoting sustainable and healthy eating habits focused on the Mediterranean diet, DELICIOUS is helping to create a better future for all of us.
The DELICIOUS project is formed by a multicultural and multidisciplinary consortium with 10 partners from 5 Mediterranean countries. The objective is to promote the Mediterranean diet across Med countries, and this wouldn’t be possible without the support and funding of the PRIMA programme and the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission.
