Local Authorities Activities

The aim of this activity is to provide key information and make LAs representatives aware on food waste issues and on the role that LAs can play in adopting proper local policies and in raising awareness of citizens on the importance of adopting sustainable behaviours.

WORKSHOP WITH LOCAL AUTHORITIESMEETING OF LOCAL AUTHORITIES (Expo, Milano)

Each partner organized in its territory 2 workshops addressing an average of 5 LAs and focusing on the following topics: the link between food waste and related land, water and energy loss towards a more responsible management of natural resources; the existence of legislative and administrative rules that often led to food waste and what can be done to remove these obstacles; presentation of the related best practices.

Working together with students, Las representatives produce suggestions and recommendations to reduce food waste and to adopt new sustainable and responsible lifestyle. These constitute the contents of the partners’ local drafts which merge into “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”.

During the “First European Youth Forum against food waste and for new responsible consumption models” within EXPO 2015, the Local Authorities Working Group was simultaneously organized, as an opportunity for exchange and dialogue, in order to guide local and national politics and practices to address food waste and to promote tangible actions in their respective territories. This event represented an important opportunity for debate among political representatives of the various countries, within a wider process of engagement with local authorities, which seeks their solid commitment through the adoption of the Young People’s Charter and of related actions against food waste in their own territory.

With regard to the local level, the students of the schools coming back from this extraordinary experience, are showing the Charter to their respective Municipality Councils, promoting its approval and they engage themselves in the creation of a local Campaign against food waste and in an educational activity targeting the Primary schools pupils.
