Our new offices come complete with their own events space; so what better way to 'launch' our new home, and our new Circular Economy advisor than to invite you along to our networking event on The Circular Economy: Food Waste - Thursday 30 November.
Food waste is a global disgrace; more than 30% of all food is wasted - good food that could have been eaten.
Food production is the single biggest impact humans have on the planet’s ecosystems - it's responsible for 80% of deforestation, 70% of fresh water consumption, massive biodiversity loss and 30% of greenhouse gas emissions; yet globally, around a third of food is wasted - we're literally trashing our planet to grow food that no-one eats.
This networking event, run in conjunction with Veris, will give you the opportunity to:
- Listen to 3 food waste specialists give a TED talk style presentation with a panel discussion and Q&A after each.
- Commercial Adpotion
- Network with like-minded people/organisations
- Then afterwards, an option to network over music, drinks and canapés
We plan to email out soon with a confirmed programme for the event, but please register your interest below!
The event is for anyone wishing to find out more about reducing food waste and strategies for doing this; therefore it is suitably aimed at: people responsible for managing waste, HR and training roles, people working in catering, those managing business facilities; or simply anyone who wishes to learn more personally.
Everyone who registers to attend the event will also receive a free copy of the eLearning module - Preventing Waste: the Journey of Food.
