In primary schools, BRESOV researchers will develop activities in basic teaching showing the diversity of vegetables, demonstrating their magic shapes and colours from different plant parts (roots, leaves, fruits, flowers and seeds ) and how they can be eaten, and the major benefits when we consume them, focusing on beans, tomatoes and broccoli. Young children will be aware to the importance of vegetables in their food and also of vegetables production in a friendly agriculture.

Additionally, BRESOV researchers will give lectures in secondary schools about the importance of crop’s genetic resources diversity in agriculture and human nutrition and how organic agriculture can contribute for the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals such as: reduce environmental impacts from food production; halt the loss of biodiversity and improve water quality by reducing pollution.
