“Development for a Better Future” Free high school teaching materials

The Crawford Fund is excited to make our free project-based high school learning materials available to teachers – we hope they will excite educators and students to the impact of work around global food and nutrition security and the broad range of career pathways to involvement.

We have no doubt that involving young Australians in international agriculture and agriculture for development has meaningful and beneficial outcomes for food and nutrition security, for the students and for Australian agriculture.

By providing your students with real life examples of Food and Nutrition Security in our region, young people are encouraged to initiate discussion, explore topics and act to develop a better future!


We’d also like to be able to improve the experience of teachers and students using these materials, so please register here  if you haven’t already done so. We would be keen to hear from you to add to the experience of using our materials, including school visits or live webinars with young people working in global food and nutrition security who can discuss their work and career pathways. Please contact Cathy Reade, Director of Outreach and Manager of the NextGen Program if you’d like to learn more about these possibilities.
