Explore how combatting food waste and food loss can help the environment

The significant contribution the food system makes to climate change is widely recognised, and consumers are increasingly concerned about food waste.

On this course, you’ll explore how you – as a consumer – can act and inspire others to reduce food waste effectively and sustainably. You’ll learn what food waste is, and why it matters, and gain practical information on how to be an agent of change both personally and politically.

You’ll discover how the circular economy provides a framework for discovering solutions to this issue, and hear from companies that are making a difference.

This course would appeal to environmentally conscious citizens who are worried about the way the Earth’s resources are currently being used and want to get a better understanding of the problem in order to take action to tackle it.

This would include employees in the food sector, restaurant owners and chefs, and concerned consumers.
