Presentation of the Result 1 – Green Skills VET Curriculum in Agri-Food sector and Sustainable Practices

Today, the 30th of May, we held the webinar to present the first result of the VET LOVES FOOD project to our community: a Green Skills VET Curriculum in Agri-Food.

Lucrezia Palladini, as coordinating manager of the Project (CECE) opened the floor by introducing the main features of the VET LOVES FOOD Project to the attendees.

Afterward, Francesca Danda, from ENAIP Veneto, a partner from the VET LOVES FOOD Project, proceeded to present the Green Skills Curriculum in the Agri-food sector. She shared how this Curriculum can lead to improving current VET paths by introducing new sustainable procedures and practices in the HORECA sector.

Moreover, we counted on the presence of our Thai-associated partner, Benjamin Lephilibert, CEO of LightBlue Consulting, presenting their sustainable practices to prevent, measure, and raise awareness on the problem of food waste, oriented to the HORECA and the educational sector.

The VET LOVES FOOD consortium wants to thank the 34 attendees for joining us!

VET LOVES FOOD – Newsletter n.2 (March 2023)

Towards Project Result 2

Being our main aim bringing awareness to the challenges that our food systems cause, the Project Result 2 focuses on the creation of a manual for food professionals and trainers

The manual will be potentially exploitable by any citizen interested in the topic of reducing food waste while giving new life to traditional recipes, following a farm-to-fork approach. VET providers’ contribution in this matter is crucial: in this way, they can enhance the culture of food waste prevention and develop new positive behaviors.

But this can also be achieved through constant dialogues and cooperation with stakeholders from the food value chain, being a key piece in the fight against food waste.

Additionally, the use of a web-based application for food waste monitoring will help to make better use of local products from a food waste prevention perspective.    

Next steps

The next steps, foreseen by the Project result 2, are:

  • Transfer and capitalization of innovative practices to track food waste.
  • Drafting of the manual.
  • Planning and promoting awareness initiatives on Food Waste Prevention and Food Waste Management.
