Sapere Coop – educating consumers towards sustainable consumption
Brief Description Consumer co-operatives are committed to educating consumers towards a conscious and sustainable consumption. Sapere Coop was established in 1980 by Coop Italy and is a nationwide consumer education project designed for teachers, students at all levels of education, and families. Through free interactive resources, such as workshops, exhibitions and editorial materials, Sapere Coop provides useful tools that enable children and young adults to elaborate a stand-alone and original point of view on consumer choices and patterns. Sapere Coop’s educational materials are tailored to fit with the Italian school program.

INHERIT Perspective The INHERIT project is driven by the quest to find the policies, practices, and innovations that are helping to foster healthier and more sustainable lifestyles and behaviours, looking more specifically at the aspects of living, moving, and consuming. Sapere Coop is a prime example of a practice that aims at educating the consumers of tomorrow with regards to living and consuming in particular. The aspect of health equity is also taken into consideration given that any school can apply to be part of a certain project, notwithstanding the region in which it is located or the socio-economic class of its students.
