Frugal innovation: Challenging austerity in primary schools

Frugal innovation: How a range of community investment companies are using surplus resources to develop meaningful engagement in primary schools, within the context of austerity
Over the last three years the Carnegie School of Education has been working with The Real Junk Food Project, Fuel for School, Rethink Food, Food Revival and The Power Project as part of Carnegie Co-creation Project.
Since the co-creation projects started, they have added value to the community investment provision by collecting surplus food, children's books, games, musical instruments and have created educational packs for primary schools in the Yorkshire region.
In this lecture Dr Anne Temple Clothier will discuss her work with co-creation projects and the importance of parental involvement with children's learning and how to encourage parents to access the school premises in a more meaningful way.
This talk is part of Leeds Beckett University's Heritage Open Days.
