(Food) Waste Not Want Not

The Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) together with the Freedom and Solidarity Foundation (BSF) is holding an event and discussion to launch its latest publication on the topic of food waste. Joint work on this topic began with a seminar in 2016 and has progressed into a larger research project: We are happy to be able to share our findings with you and to exchange more on this important topic.

With one third of food wasted before it even reaches our plates there are serious economic, environmental and social costs concerned. Reduction of food waste is now part of the circular economy package at European level and also one of the Sustainable Development Goals. It is also important to target this in reaching the climate objectives of the Paris agreement to reduce global greenhouse emissions that would benefit everyone.

The book aims to bring further awareness to the issue of food waste, it sets out the current situation, where the problem lies and where the challenges are when addressing the issue. Offering some useful examples from different regions in Europe where new initiatives have been created to tackle this issue, it brings together contributions from political, academic and civil society spheres into a positive outlook on how to reduce our food waste footprint.
