Our University, established in 1922, is situated in the heart of Warsaw, Poland, where busy city life mixes with the tranquillity of nearby parks. Among our biggest advantages are highly qualified staff and interesting programs of study such as Psychology, Sociology, Pedagogy, Special Education, Social Work and Artistic Education. We introduce sustainability to our everyday learning process by including diverse projects, e.g. Green school backpack for the Earth's climate or Environmental education for sustainable development in initial teacher education. We are glad to have a possibility to prepare our teachers for the educational challenges, including care for our planet and sustainability. In SmartFood MGU is responsible for qualitative and quantitative assessment of users’ attitudes and behaviours connected with food consumption, healthy eating habits and reduction of food wasting, as well as analysis of users’ experience based on SmartFood implementation.
