The International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste makes a clear call to action to private, public entities and citizens to enhance the efficient use of natural resources, mitigate climate change, and support food security and nutrition by reducing food loss and waste. And we all have a role to play! Together we can make a difference.
In Brussels, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations and the United Nations Environment Programme are delighted to invite you to the official celebration of the Day with the title “International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste: Stop food loss and waste. For the people! For the planet!”.
The event will take place at BE-HERE sustainable village on Friday 29 September 2023, from 12.30 to 1.30 PM followed by a networking moment with light lunch and drinks.
The location of our event is the inspiring BE-HERE sustainable village that gives space to young Brussels-based entrepreneurs to develop their sustainable business, many of them in the agrifood sector, and putting a great emphasis on “closing the circle”. We will enjoy the space, atmosphere and locally produced food and drinks, while getting informed about one of the major ecological challenges of our times.
