Unit 4 Digital Project: Food Waste Infographic


Food waste is a major obstacle to food security and you can take meaningful steps to combat it.

For the Unit 4 Digital Project, you will survey people at your school about food waste, analyze the survey findings, and create an infographic to share your discoveries and reflections.

To complete the project, you will:

  • Take photos of their school meal and cafeteria
  • Take photos of food waste problems and/or solutions
  • Survey people at your school about food waste
  • Reflect on food waste problems and solutions at their school
  • Create an infographic to share the information collected, reflections, and ideas about solutions

You can use 1 of these digital tools to create your infographic:


Piktochart A program for creating charts and informational graphics.


Canva An online poster and document making tool that allows one to make professional looking infographics and presentations.

Easel.ly An easy to use infographic creation website.

To create your U3 Digital Product

Use page 53 of your Global Scholars Workbook (the ‘Make a plan’ worksheet).




You will have to create a prezi or adobe spark presentation to share with your peers in the e-classroom. [check this post for last year examples on using these tools]

Your presentation should include:

  • A front page slide with the name of your urban farming innovation, your names and your city (Sant Boi / Barcelona)
  • A slide with your 3D prototype
  • The location for your urban farm (why did you choose it?)
  • The benefits of the farming innovation you have chosen
  • The crops you will grow (why did you choose them? why do they fit our climate and culture?)
  • How you will care for your soil (if there is soil) and How you will access water
  • Some challenges you might encounter
  • A final slide (what can you include on a final slide?)

Then you will have to present it orally to our class.
