Nutrition, health & beauty are the three pillars of this room. A lot of disparities still exist globally concerning food and health care access. We live in a world of strong contrasts! Thatís why FACTS & FIGURES put together [hunger] and [obesity], [organic food] and [harmful eating], [meat consumption] and [water pollution]: they are all faces of the same coin! The world is complex but there are simple ways to start changing it! Have a look at the DEPíT STORE to discover organic food & drink products - [organic ice cream], [innocent drinks] - cruelty free [certified cosmetics], [natural medicine] remedies etc. Come and see how a simple T-shirt can became a smart and ironic way to oppose factory farming and promote a sustainable food production system [meatrix]; or how buying a football can become a way to assure all the children of the world their right to play [let kids have fun]. And thatís not all! For the incurably curious, the JOBS section offers spotlights and cool contacts on associations advocating for animal rights [coalition to end animal experiments], to assure every person in the world the right to practise sports [sport for all association], and much more. If you are a trainer you will probably enjoy taking a glance at the TRAINERíS ROOM section. Here you will find plenty of classwork ideas concerning, for example, how to organise a [school canteen bio-planning] or on [reading food labels]. And if after having strolled about this room you feel ready to challenge yourself, then go straight to the TEST & PLAY section to [test your taste] and... amuse yourself!
