THE PROJECT

The project intended to contribute to concrete behaviours change of the young generations, who are “today and tomorrow” consumers and future decision makers.

The main idea was to involve youngsters not only as beneficiaries of the action, but above all to make them protagonists and awareness agents towards their families and other coetaneous.

 

ACTIVITIES

The main result of the project is the DWOF charter through which schools and local authorities commit to address food waste and the right to food through the following can be resumed in three topics:

•    Establishment of a steady curriculum within the formal educational system to provide education on responsible behaviours and fighting against food waste addressing young generations
•    Empowering young generation and make youngsters peer to peer agents for responsible behaviours and fighting against food waste
•    Increase the role of local authorities as policy makers and awareness agents for citizens in responsible behaviours and fighting food waste

As a partner, ACR+ participated in the steering committee, appointed experts for activities and settled agreements with relevant local actors and stakeholders. ACR+ also helped with the development of methods and materials and promoted in particular the DWOF charter on the fight against food waste.

THE CHARTER

In the framework of the Don't Waste Our Future (DWOF) project a European charter on the fight against food waste and the right to food has been adopted.

This charter is the results of discussions and meetings between students and local authorities' representatives and includes commitments and recommendations applicable by students/schools and local authorities. It was launched during the "1st European Forum of Youth and Local Authorities against Food Waste and for the global Right to Food" held in Milan on 21-22 October 2015 within the EXPO 2015.
