Plastic Food to Plastic Minds

3 - 4  may 2017 at  Perugia – Italy

 Disability seen as a resource for teaching the reduction of waste production


This is an invitation to expression of interest in the Western and Southern  Europe Conference taking place in Perugia, Italy,  3-4 May  2017.


The conference has got 4 topics :


  • Presentation of UUD Erasmus+ Elearning Platform and explain the project  
  • A contact seminar for organizations from Western and Southern Europe in view of the ErasmusPlus deadline 2018.
  • Local experience : "The old time's snack" retrives traditions of the past, it makes us free from waste; a new consciousness that makes us regain possession of old values now abandoned. This consideration led to the idea of involving the children of an entire school to create a concrete link between past and future. For this we have explained the children what was the snack of our grandparents, which was back then a need. A slice of bread, spread with half a tomato and seasoned with our extra virgin olive oil and salt. The recovery of this snack binds us to the recovery of a tradition, of a moment that expands over time and which does not create waste. The snack becomes genuine and healthy, not just good; it is no longer an anonymous snack wrapped in many layers of packaging : it’s healthier for us and for the environment.
  • Education: Plastic Food to Plastic Minds, Disability seen as a resource for teaching the reduction of  waste production
