Our four schools: Lincoln Christ's Hospital School, Lycée Aimé Césaire, Gymnázium Jiřího Orten and Midtsjællands Gymnasium have a long history of cooperation and innovation stemming from the CED+ group.
Previous projects have included the exploration of European citizenship, work, disability, equality, gender, intergration and childhood.
Our objective is to develop our students' awareness of health and well being by looking at three main aspects:
Nutrition and well being. .
Physical exercise and well-being.
Alcohol, smoking and drugs and well-being.
We aim to cooperate and exchange systematically on each topic and subtopic develop better understanding and practices. We want to discover and evaluate the best practices in each member country and develop a greater insight into each of the members’ own culture.
Our students are 16-19 year olds who are studying subjects which compliment and enhance the project aims. The benefits for them are multifold - ranging from a real boost in employable skills to a deepening of their understanding of pan-European issues to refining their language skills.
Staff from our four partner schools bring a vast range of skills and knowledge to the project.
Specialist language, social science, sports, art, nutrition, computing and science teachers are involved in the development and delivery of the project. A key element of Food for Thought is the year long dissemination of the themes and outcomes of the conferences and we pride ourselves on the level of involvement of the whole school communities.
