  Unit 7 Promoting Sustainable Food

The Developing Environmental Awareness Qualification (OCNW) has a new Unit (7) from August 2008, called "Promoting Sustainable Food". As far as we know, this is the first national recognised qualification for promoting sustainable food.

Our e-Guide expands on the qualification's Learning Outcomes (LOs) and What To Do (TDs) and points you in the direction to find out more and what you need to do. Click the left hand link for more. F

The complete online e-Guide takes you on a trip to Develop your Environmental Awareness , when you can then help "introduce or implement environmentally friendly practices into your organisation". You must first become "environmentally aware", then you can choose to tackle key issues - energy, waste, water, transport, pollution, sustainable food and carbon counting.

The e-Guide can help individual learners, or tutors and facilitators by spelling out the issues, linking with sources of relevant information, indicating ways to implement environmental practices, and finding ways to improve on present emvironmental impacts.
