Analysis | Report writing

Project overview

"Don’t waste our Future" is a project financed by the European Union. It is directed at young people and local authorities in Europe and is designed to raise awareness of the issue of food waste and encourage young people to adopt more responsible models of consumption.

A key element of the project implementation in Portugal is about enabling local authorities and their networks to recognise the role that they can play in supporting citizens to take action. 

Foodways supported the project by estimating the losses and waste in two Portuguese local authorities and identified measures they could implement to tackle food waste.

This information will then be aggregated at European level to enable discussion and exchange,  promote the development of common strategies and potentially lead to the creation of some European guidelines.
