Webinar VET Loves FOOD, official launch!

Last Thursday 20th of October we hosted our first webinar to launch the VET LOVES FOOD Project to our growing community.

Lucrezia Palladini, European Project Manager (CECE) and coordinating partner, presented the main objectives, results and impact of the project. Her presentation encompassed the “soul”, values and drivers behind the VET LOVES FOOD Project.

We counted on the presence of two partners of the project as speakers:

  • Igor Ozamiz, head of kitchen of the Higher School of Hospitality of Bilbao (ESHBI). He gave us a very interesting approach to how the HORECA sector is being transformed and must be transformed to meet the needs of a world in which food waste is a reality on a daily basis. Under the motto of “producing more with less”, Igor showed the participants a selection of products made entirely of food waste, which made us reconsider the numerous ways to avoid producing food waste in a very simple way.
  • Stefano Tirati, CEO of Learning Digital, not only explained the functioning of the VET LOVES FOOD Platform, but also encouraged the participants of the webinar to register by giving solid reasons why they should engage in our fight against food waste and be part of the VET LOVES community.

Now is your turn. Join our community. Be part of the change!

Rethink, Reduce, Reuse: VET LOVES FOOD and its mission

Did you know that our food systems today account for nearly one-third of global GHG emissions and consume large amounts of natural resources? Not only does this issue result in biodiversity losses and health impacts, but also do not allow fair economic returns and livelihoods for all actors and primary producers.

With regard to food waste, did you know that the 20% of total food produced is lost or wasted?

According to the European Commission:

  • 8-10% of global greenhouse gas emissions are generated by food that goes wasted.
  • 36.2 million people cannot afford a quality meal every second day.
  • Nearly 30% of the world’s agricultural land is occupied to produce food that is never consumed.

To fight against climate change, VET LOVES FOOD project was born with the aim to support awareness-raising about environmental and climate-change challenges through the development of green skills. In the end, food-waste is an environmental concern: from 6% to 8% of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions could be reduced if we stop wasting food.

Officially launched the 28th February 2022, the project focuses on activating more sustainable individual preferences, consumption habits, and lifestyles regarding food waste: how?

Pushing through innovative model practices to prepare learners, staff, and students to become true agents of change regarding food waste.
