Alimentacción: Network of Schools for a Living Rural World -social-educational program that started in 2010 with the help of Food Justice and which, since 2014, Hegoa has been incorporated- part of the accompaniment to educational centers as an axis of action to reflect on our diet and how it affects the environment, health and living conditions of people and the community. The network is made up of nursery, primary, secondary and high school centers throughout the Spanish State that want to generate critical awareness and promote action in the face of the social, economic and environmental consequences generated by our food model throughout the entire production process , distribution, commercialization, consumption and waste. Currently, the program has the participation of around 160 educational centers (mainly public schools in Andalusia, Cantabria, Castilla la Mancha, Catalunya, Illes Balears, Madrid, País Valencià and Euskadi, which allows us to work with more than 1,300 teachers in the entire State The experience has become an educational benchmark.

Current program

From Alimentacción we promote an alternative model based on the principles of Food Sovereignty with a gender perspective, taking the educational center as a dynamic axis to involve the entire community. During this period 2019-2022 we have two programs:
  • With the Vocational Training centers:
Aimed at accompanying the Professional Training centers of six professional families (Agrarian, Hospitality and Tourism, Food Industries, Maritime-Fisheries, Health and Socio-cultural Services and the community). The institutes that are part of the network incorporate content, materials and activities based on the principles of Food Sovereignty with a gender perspective into their center plans that question the current food model. All of this is based on participatory methodologies that make the centers true spaces for democracy and conscious and critical learning.
  • With the Associations of Mothers and Fathers (AMPA, CEAPA and FEDERATIONS):
Aimed at accompanying the Associations of Mothers and Fathers throughout the State interested in promoting food transition processes both in the reference schools and within the family. For the latter, we have the collaboration of CEAPA and its 47 associated Federations.
