David commented on Learning from Droughts

Education Policy Change — Ecology and Material Resources. I can envision that plenty of the curricula in the U.S. specially is outdated and out of sync with current affairs. Persistent reinforcement of the concepts through formative years will create an effect, a level of almost sublime awareness of [what] is the impact of not recycling, [why] is important to recycle and [HOW] do you start recycling. And beyond that conservation of energy, etc.

David commented on BinCam - Recycling Through Social Media

Behavioral change through group influence.

Extremely hard challenge yet optimistic about it, changing culture it self. Increase awareness of the benefits of fresh food and help them make better choices through updating moral constructs.

Random thoughts:

• Kids eat the food provided for them by parents
• Kid demand food by taste, affinity and subjectivity
• Kids influence their parents on purchase or food preparation.
• Kids are exposed to new food products on a daily basis.
• Do kids understand the consequences of an unhealthy lifestyle?
• Do kids understand what fresh food means?
• What is the status of self-esteem?
• Government regulations on advertising targeting kids and influencing parents to purchase mass-produced products.
• Regulations are leverages to trigger change.
• More education for parent to properly stimulate healthy eating habits on their children.
• Parent opt for convince at the time of preparing food.
• Fresh Food is conceived as highly priced and time consuming.
• Educational requirements, Agro 101?
