Turner, Bethaney – Policy Futures in Education, 2019

Kiddle, Rebecca; Mawer, Chantal; McAuliffe Bickerton, Ceara; Ryan, Alyssa; Siemonek, Laurette – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
Many environmental concerns such as climate change and reducing fossil-fuel dependence seem 'out of reach' for the majority of us regarding creating change.

Re-embedding foodways in local communities and ecologies is an enormous undertaking that is supported in part through a myriad of educational processes. For niche spaces of post-industrial foodways, a crucial step toward normalization is being accepted, appreciated, and even desired by the wider society. This article explores how pedagogy…

The discussion will be…
