Summary

"'Water and Food: futures thinking' is the outcome of collaboration between two different projects within the Victorian Department of Primary Industries 7F 13 Irrigation Futures of the Goulburn Broken Catchment and LandLearn. Staff of both programs recognised the value of the outputs of Irrigation Futures for the education sector and the opportunities to develop teaching and learning materials relevant to important issues confronting communities everywhere and affecting the future world of students today. The scenario planning methodology that was utilised to explore the future of irrigated agriculture in the Goulburn Broken Region can be applied in a number of disciplines, particularly when exploring issues related to the future sustainability of place or system 7F 13 social, environmental and economic. Irrigation Futures also provided the basis for teaching and learning resources to support units in Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) Geography, Agricultural and Horticultural Studies and Environmental Science. Although this resource is about the Goulburn Broken Catchment in Victoria and addresses the Victorian curriculum guidelines, the teaching and learning materials in 'Water and Food: futures thinking' can be adapted for use within the curriculum structures of other states. They provide examples and learning opportunities for use in sustainability education in the context of futures thinking or envisioning. The scenario planning methodology, modified for student use, can be adapted to explore a variety of issues and themes."--'Background'.
