Did you know that between 33-50% of all food produced globally is never eaten, and the value of this wasted food is worth over $1 trillion?

Explore the problem of food waste in the world and in the Netherlands – and meet people who are working on a local level to reduce the waste of food.

Three organisations (InstockBuurtBuik, TBA) will share their inspiring stories from the front line of the fight against food waste. Come learn more about the food waste problem and get all the practical tips you need to reduce your own waste of food!

You’ll dig into challenges brought by our guests and co-create exciting solutions to these challenges together with other young impact makers.
