1st European Forum of Young and Local Authorities Against Food Waste and for global Right to Food

Banner Forum #DWOF

The “1st European Youth and Local Authorities Forum against food waste and for the right to food” represents on one hand a meeting and dialogue space between young people, institutions and local authorities, in which concrete proposals for the reduction of food waste will be developed. On the other hand, the Forum will be the setting for the elaboration and the launch of the “DON’T WASTE OUR FUTURE Charter 2015 – A joint European Manifesto of Young People and Local Authorities to promote Food Waste Reduction and the global Right to Food”.

Through the building of this document, European young students and local authorities get closer and lay the foundation for an international alliance against food waste and for the right to food; furthermore, inside each proper scope, both the actors commit themselves to turn the document into concrete actions against food waste.

Event schedule and description

The Forum will involve a delegation of 120 Secondary Schools students, 45 teachers, and 25 Local Authorities Representatives of the 7 European Countries involved (which correspond to the nine territories because in Italy there are three territories involved in the project). During th Forum, the students, together with the teachers, the Local Authorities Representatives and the participatory processes facilitators, will debate their own proposals and elaborate the final “DON’T WASTE OUR FUTURE Charter 2015 – A joint European Manifesto of Young People and Local Authorities to promote Food Waste Reduction and the global Right to Food”.

The Forum will continue with the launch of the Charter which will be presented by the authors themselves in front of the most representative National, European and International Institutions; later on, during the plenary session, eminent speakers will introduce the themes of Food Waste and Right to Food. The audience, composed of the students, the teachers, the Local Authorities Representatives and of all project’s partners, will interact both in the theoretical moments and in the debates with the policy makers.
