Deutsche Welle's multimedia learning packages bring the topics of climate action and biodiversity conservation into the classroom - no matter where it takes place. As distance learning becomes more frequent due to the Corona pandemic, the current learning package "Food for the future – feeding the world in a climate-friendly way" bas been adapted to the requirements of learning at home.

Climate change and food production 

By 2050, our planet will be home to a predicted 10 billion people. Making sure there is enough food to go around without fuelling the climate crisis is a huge challenge. This learning pack looks at food for the future and offers solutions to questions such as: 

How do we ensure food production does not exacerbate global warming or take up too much space? How can farmers adapt to the unavoidable impacts of climate change? How can I create a climate-friendly diet that allows me to eat my favourite foods?

Multimedia learning pack for children and young people

The learning pack is for children and young people aged between 12 and 16 years. It can be used in school lessons or in other groups. The modules can also be used and explored individually.

The learning pack “Food for the future – feeding the world in a climate-friendly way” includes:

  • 1 booklet for teachers (for classroom teaching); 
  • 1 workbook for participants (for distance learning); 
  • 6 films and 3 articles.

The pack is available for download in German, English and Spanish

Global Ideas – the Deutsche Welle learning packs

The teaching material “Food for the future – feeding the world in a climate-friendly way” is the seventh of ten learning packs that deal with key issues of climate and environmental protection. Created by the Global Ideas team of Deutsche Welle, the series will run until 2022. The project is funded by International Climate Initiative (IKI).

Launched in May 2017, the multimedia reportage project aims at getting children and young people interested in climate action and biodiversity. The topics are presented in an understandable way, multimedia-based, target-oriented and exciting.
