The team of the Sustainability, Heritage, Health project met in Athens in June for a final project meeting. The meeting was focused on putting together the project Handbook, which is the last part of this Erasmus+ partnership.
The team also had the opportunity to experience some hands-on cooking workshops in a family park and environmental education facility outside Athens. We picked, prepared, and cooked vegetables following a Greek recipe.
Sonia Aguera who attended with Surefoot as a volunteer illustrated some of this work.
This is the second part of this project, where the partnership created a recipe book with traditional recipes from the four participating countries, Scotland, Greece, Spain, and Lithuania, where we also considered nutrition and sustainability issues.
The Covid travel restrictions that were in place in 2020 and still in many places in 2021 and 2022 made the team rely on online communication more, which removed the need to meet in person as often as is usual for these projects. In this way, we have avoided the flights associated with 18 participants across 3 international meetings, with a significant reduction in carbon emissions.
