European week for waste reduction
The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is an initiative promoting the implementation of awareness-raising actions about sustainable resource and waste management during a single week. It encourages a wide range of audiences (public authorities, private companies, civil society as well as citizens themselves) to get involved. The 2018 edition will take place from 17 to 25 November 2018! On occasion of EWWR, Gustolab International will be screening videos throughout the day on November 19th that were created by university students regarding food waste issues. The focus is on what can be done to recycle and reuse excess food to benefit the community. There are many examples of ways that people every day are creating innovative solutions to alleviate food waste. A major UN sustainable development goal is to halve global food waste at all levels by 2030. As a global system, the struggle in this field is apparent and action must be taken to confront this issue.
