Understanding health and nutrition issues in urban school environments in Indonesia

3 August 2017

A presentation by Sydney School of Education and Social Work's CoInEd research network in partnersip with the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre.

Indonesia’s landscapes are linguistically rich and more often than not filled with visual signs and texts, including posters, charts, billboards, road and safety signs, shop signs, graffiti and all manner of other inscriptions in public spaces in order to convey messages to those who will read them. The purpose of the project described in this seminar was to gather (digitally) and analyse food/nutrition signs/texts in the “linguistic landscapes” around two Indonesian school communities (inside and immediately outside the school perimeters) in order to judge the nature of that linguistic landscape where there is likely potential impact on school-age children, who are at a stage in their lives during which, arguably, they need to learn about good food and nutrition to develop eating habits that will help them live long, healthy lives.
