A Meaningful Life for a Better World (Science Classes)
This presentation provides a foundational understanding of pressing environmental issues, including global warming, deforestation, and species extinction. Through mainstream research, powerful photos and videos, and student engagement, we explore the profound impact that animal agriculture has on the planet, and discuss sensible solutions for creating change. We address the principal that healthy choices and helping others are the foundation for living a conscious and meaningful life.
Food Choices for a Healthier Future (Health Classes)
This presentation explores the link between diet and disease, reinforcing evidence-based nutrition recommendations for a predominantly plant-based diet and teaching students how we can protect our health—and the health of our planet—through our daily food choices. Our engaging and research-based lessons navigate dietary myths, the many factors that influence us to choose unhealthy foods, and how to build meals for optimal health and longevity.
Interested in bringing one of our presentations to your class?
Our compelling presentations challenge students to think critically about their daily food choices, and how those choices affect the environment and personal health. Through open and thought-provoking discussion, students learn how smart and conscious food choices can collectively create a healthier, more sustainable and compassionate future - and that every meal can be a vote for a better world.
Students also receive LGK's take home Guide to Eating Lean and Green, with key points from the lesson, plus easy and delicious recipe ideas - helping to extend the lesson home to parents, and further support healthy choices.

What teachers are saying...
The presentation was engaging for both the students and me! The information is "real life" applicable and connects well to the Next Generation Science Standards, particularly the Climate Change performance expectations. The presentation also emphasized other "life lessons", such as healthy eating, environmental stewardship, and compassion. It's amazing how much this one presentation taught my students!
Mr. Linke, High School Teacher, Spring Valley, CA.
My students were highly engaged and had so many questions. They learned so much and, since the presentation, have been sharing with me some of their latest choices to make an impact. Thank you, LGK! -Mrs. Esposito, Middle School Teacher, Oceanside, CA.
