Food Literacy International Partnership (FLIP)

IFHE is partner to the Food Literacy International Partnership (FLIP), a global collaboration to support educators and researchers in their work, understanding the world through food. The work around food literacy education connects to a range of global issues including:

  • social inequity that causes both hunger and overconsumption;
  • loss of biodiversity and
  • impacts on the well-being of citizens.

The Partnerships's aim is to create opportunities for learning about food and to develop people’s capacity to act in ways that support sustainable consumption and equitable access to food.
