In occasion of the European Sustainable Development Week DIESIS organises an event on sustainable food systems and the social economy on 30 May.

The Danish Minister of Environment and Food invites leading, international experts, gastronomy frontrunners, influencers, and decisions makers for the World Food Summit in Copenhagen in August 2017.

The Nordic Council of Ministers for Fisheries and Aquaculture, Agriculture, Food and Forestry and the Norwegian Chairmanship of 2017 are inviting to a conference on April 27 2017.

A principios de 2017 se ha realizado la primera fase del proyecto piloto “Gastrofira”, consistente en una cuantificación del desperdicio alimentario generado en el servicio de catering de la Feria de Barcelona durante la celebración de una importante feria internacional. Para tener una visión global, se ha tenido en cuenta tanto el desperdicio generado en cocina como el generado por los comensales. Esta primera cuantificación servirá de línea base para medir el impacto positivo de ciertas intervenciones que se realizarán en próximas ferias.

A fecha de Febrero de 2017, las 16 organizaciones participantes en la Plataforma REFRESH española ya han firmado el Marco de Acción que regirá su compromiso de lucha contra el desperdicio alimentario durante los próximos 2 años.

In early 2017 the first actIvity of the pilot project "Gastrofira" has been completed. Food waste generated by the catering service of Feria de Barcelona (trade fair organisation) was quantified during an international event. Food waste data from kitchen and dining room has been gathered in order to establish a baseline for upcoming events’ reduction interventions.

February 2017, 16 organizations signed the Spanish REFRESH Platform Framework for Action showing their commitment to fight against food waste over the next 2 years.

The Sustainable Foods Summit explores new horizons for sustainability and eco-labels, such as Organic, Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance, etc, in the food industry by discussing key industry issues.

Food waste quantification is challenging, but two recently published sets of guidelines will help entities (governments, businesses, research organisations) that are seeking to measure food waste. This report demonstrates how to use both sets of guidelines to quantify and measure food waste.

Wastewatchers and Transition Surplus Food Project were selected as winners by the expert jury, and Zero Waste Aiud gathered over 17,000 votes to win the Public Award!
