Youth against food waste – Catalyzing change through interactive workshops

Youth against food waste – Catalyzing change through interactive workshops

In a dynamic stride to foster a world with minimal food waste, the WFF's Youth Toward Zero Food Waste campaign recently held a series of engaging and interactive workshops, targeting youths from all across the world. Organized between September and early October, these workshops delved into the core issues of food waste and food insecurity, presenting creative solutions to collectively combat these pressing challenges.

The workshops were conducted in English, Spanish and French, to ensure we would reach and inspire a broader audience to join us in this journey towards zero food waste. With an overwhelming response, nearly 800 individuals actively participated, creating a vibrant exchange of ideas and perspectives throughout.
