An EAFRD funded awareness raising LEADER project to address the increasing knowledge gap in society about agricultural production systems and the shrinking appreciation for foodstuffs.
“Fro de Bauer” was an innovative project in which a unique approach on how to teach young citizens between 10 and 11 years of age about agriculture was developed and implemented. Through tactile and collaborative learning, workshops and a farm visit, young citizens were given the opportunity to gather hands-on experiences to build their own opinions on agriculture. The project activities were included seamlessly in the curricula of Luxembourg primary schools. It built on the cooperation of a broad range of players, helping to improve the image of agriculture in Luxembourg and enhancing the appreciation of foodstuffs.
1 300 school pupils from 83 classes took part in the “Fro de Bauer” programme during the 2018/19 and 2019/20 school years.
The 20 participating schools represent 13% of Luxembourg’s primary schools.
The project created 1 full-time and 2 half-time jobs (2 FTE).
