Make #NotWasting Food a Way of Life

unep-food-wasteA new initiative launched by UN Environment  and the Commission for Environmental Cooperation of North America is looking for video submissions from schools about food waste prevention.

The Make #NotWasting food a way of life video contest asks North Americans to share their food waste reduction initiatives, whether small- or large-scale, by submitting a video online. The video does not need to be a big production – they just need to demonstrate great initiatives and acknowledge them! The videos will help communities across North America learn from each other and find innovative ways to reduce food waste and loss.

All contest materials can be found on Trello: ttps:// 

The contest is open to private citizens, schools, nongovernmental organizations, businesses, agricultural producers, and municipal and state/provincial government agencies in Canada, Mexico, and the United States.Three winners, one from each country, will be invited (all expenses paid) to present their initiative at the first North American Workshop on Food Waste Reduction and Recovery, hosted by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation in Toronto, Canada from February 28-March 2, 2017.
