With the world's population expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, students need to be empowered to make simple changes in their food consumption habits to create a sustainable future. One key issue they can act on is protecting pollinators, such as bees, which are essential to food production. This article describes various classroom activities designed to educate students about food security, sustainable agriculture, and the importance of pollinators. The activities include group discussions, role-plays, case studies, research projects, and creating proposals to improve school menus and support sustainable agriculture.
