SAVE FOOD: Initiative mondiale de réduction des pertes et du gaspillage alimentaires

Reducing food waste...starting from schools

20 Sep 2018

Recognizing that children and young people are the consumers that will shape the food waste scenario of the future, thus investing in their education to reduce food waste, will help in creating a culture of change, toward sustainably stemming the problem.

In that context, FAO and the International Food Waste Coalition (IFWC) joined forces to develop the “Do Good Save Food” series of teaching manuals targeted to children of four different age groups.  The guides seek to promote awareness of the economic, social and environmental consequences of wasting food, advantages of preventing food waste, actions that children can take to reduce food waste and good habits that they can develop and introduce to their friends, families and communities to reduce food waste.

The training guides were launched at FAO HQ during a launch event, wherein a keynote presentation was delivered on video, by Ms. Biljan Borzan, Member of the European Parliament.

Here are the Event agenda; Photos and recorded Webcast

The guides are now a global public good, and are freely accessible online.
