Our Daily Waste
Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 06:00 PM Sala Agricoltura Familiare (Sala Rossa)
What kind of production model has led to the levels of food waste we are currently witnessing? How can we, as a worldwide community, change our course? First of all, we need to understand that when we waste food, we are not only wasting money, but also time, energy, and environmental and intellectual resources.
This conference is organized as part of the project "Oltre Rio + 20- www.seminailcambiamento.org" of Oxfam, Slow Food, CeSPI, Arcs; with the contribution of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, and the European Union.
