The multidisciplinary Alimentarium has become an authority on cultural, historical, social and scientific issues of food and nutrition. Yet to develop sustainably, the Alimentarium must continue to redefine its accessibility. Therefore, in 2013, the Alimentarium decided to not only rely on visitors coming to the Museum itself, but to also distribute its content directly to a wider public. Since then, new digital spaces and offers have been developed. The Alimentarium has changed its approach to now focus on a transmedia dialogue with visitors, a combined awareness program on the basis of a digital learning ecosystem. Schoolchildren, teachers and parents learn together while playing and will see that it can still be fun.
The Alimentarium is more than just a museum. It wishes to share its expertise in food and nutrition online with children, their teachers and their parents via the MOOC platform, connected to a range of applications and games.
