    Do Good: Save Food! Educational tools and good practices for schools

    Organiser: Others

    From 11:00 to 12:30

    This webinar will present the “Do Good: Save Food!” educational package, which promotes food waste reduction in primary and secondary schools. The package was developed by UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the International Food Waste Coalition (IFWC) and consists of different modules that teachers can use in class and to plan lessons and activities on the issue. It is associated with complementary materials to help kitchen and canteen staff track food waste and implement a comprehensive approach to reduce food waste in schools by connecting with other value chain actors. The materials have already been piloted in schools in Italy, UK, France and Belgium.

    This year, education about waste reduction and behavioural change will be the thematic focus of the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR), the largest waste prevention campaign in Europe. Every year in November, the EWWR sees thousands of activities organised around the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle). The webinar will therefore be an opportunity to learn how to use the educational materials developed by the FAO and IFWC to implement an action for EWWR 2019 and to hear about success stories that have previously been carried out within the framework of the project.

    The FAO and IFWC are currently looking for new partners to implement their programme on a broader scale. Is your local or regional authority willing to improve their food waste prevention measures?
