About: JUCCCE is one of the top environmental organizations in China, accelerating the greening of China since 2007 JUCCCE is a leader in creating systemic change in sustainable cities, sustainable consumerism and smart grid, and most noted for its multi-sector convening power.
Key JUCCCE milestones: holding the first public dialogues between US & China on clean energy, introducing Smart Grid to China, educating ~1000 Chinese government leaders on how to build sustainable cities, creating the China Dream initiative to reimagine prosperity for sustainable consumerism, launching China's first comprehensive kids' healthy food curriculum. JUCCCE has one of the longest running, most impactful internship programs in China for foreign and domestic students.
JUCCCE’s Food Heroes program aims to change the way people eat, in a way that is good for them and good for the planet. Food education is a new global priority because it can improve development pathways of entire countries. Yet most countries have no formal food education program.
Over the course of a year, or 37 classes, students and teachers play games together to discover the lost meaning of food across the web of life. Students accompany 5 Food Heroes in their journey to unlock the right combination of foods and help them win over food villains to save the world. After conquering all 3 Quests, students become Food Heroes who eat with love for their bodies and planet.
Food Education is the secret ingredient for a better world
Food Heroes appeals to everyone because everyone is fascinated with food. Everyone has their food struggles. Through exploring our relationship with food, we can heal ourselves, we can connect with the people around us, and we can bond with the nature that sustains us. In other words, Food Heroes teaches children how to be better people with self love, sharing love, and loving our world.
