A Food Loss and Waste Master class will be held in December 2022. This virtual event will be addressed to youth who want to discover more about the causes of food loss and waste and solutions to achieving the SDG 12.3 target.

A brief questionnaire was submitted to potential participants to ensure that a broad spectrum of interests on the topic can be addressed, and to facilitate engaging discussion and fruitful participation. According to feedback, which was consolidated and analysed, the event will be tailored to youth.  

Registration is now open!
