The “FRIDIS Toolkit” deals with various aspects of food waste and creative collaboration with children from the first to the fifth grade. It contains four tools that inspire playful, communicative, and creative learning: knowledge cards, a wheel of senses, the game, “vegetable peeler against vegetable brush”, and the creative leftover kitchen. The project also combines elements of sustainable development education with storytelling and independent learning methods, which aims to encourage children to change their behaviour and attitudes in a positive way and to make informed decisions. Climate change and its consequences will play an increasingly important role in our lives in the future, which is why it is important for children to be able to assimilate information, calculate risks and prepare for the consequences of the climate crisis.
