Protein and the Planet

Delve into the world of protein in our Kitchen activity. What’s it made of and why do we eat it?

We'll be thinking about the impact of our protein choices on our health and the planet, and cooking up some interesting alternatives.

  • Ever considered using insects as a protein source? Join us in making sushi with a buggy twist in Future Sushi
  • Invent and cook your own meat-free burgers with some familiar (and unusual ingredients) in The Big Green Grill Off

Kitchen sessions are drop-in, so check the information boards for times when you arrive. Recommended for age 7+

Protein and the Planet is part of our ongoing programme of activities exploring climate change and the positive actions we can take together to protect our planet. On the 5 June this year, We The Curious declared a climate emergency, joining other institutions in recognising the urgency to act and pledging to become carbon neutral by 2030.
