Information sheet: Food, farming and climate change

Information sheets for teachers and pupils discuss the problem of climate change and explain that, by changing the way we farm, process and eat our food, we can improve the planet.

Many international scientists now agree that the world’s climate is changing and that the main cause of this change is greenhouse gases (such as carbon dioxide) which are released into the atmosphere by human activity. Making changes to the way we farm, process, distribute and eat our food will help us to cut emissions of greenhouse gases and reduce the most harmful effects of climate change. The Soil Association believes that organic farming will play a vital role in this process.

Here are a few ideas for resources and information from other organisations:
