Panel Discussion on Food Waste Causes & Solutions

Feb

12

Lund, Sweden

oikos Lund in partnership with Food Saving Lund will host a panel discussion on Food Waste Causes & Solutions.

Globally, 5.4 million square miles of land — around 10% of the planet’s habitable surface – is used to produce food that is never eaten (WWF, 2018). If food waste was a country, its emissions would come in third after only China and the United States (FAO, n.d.).

Is food waste the world’s most unnecessary problem? Or has the importance of food waste been overrepresented at the expense of other types of waste? Join Oikos Lund and Food Saving Lund for a panel discussion on the causes, effects, and potential solutions to food waste.
