━━━ The Project

FoodE tackles food loss in Europe by raising awareness amongst youth centers and young people, inspiring them to engage in sustainable development but also realize food loss elimination initiatives to fight climate change.
FoodE will enable young future farmers to develop business ideas directly related to food loss.
FoodE also seeks to provide young farmers with a framework for creating collaborative affiliations with old farmers and agro-experts with the ultimate goal to foster activities interwoven with the food loss issue.
The project addresses three topics: youth employability, environment and climate change and agriculture.
The project’s General Objectives are the following:
• Raise agri-food enterpreneurs’ and farmer’s awareness of food loss and its impact on the environment through providing them with opportunities to engage in knowledge-exchanges with experts.
• Create affiliations to improve youth employability.
• Training for future FoodE ambassadors and providing them with possibilities to communicate with old farmers and agri-food entrepreneurs that will help them design solutions, products and/or services for tackling the food loss issue.
The Results of FoodE will be the following:

 Provide youth organisations with a comprehensive framework and advised methodologies on how to tackle the food loss issue
• Create an e-Manual to provide young people with a framework for collaborating with farmers to foster activities to minimize food loss
• Implement Innovation Days to help them acquire knowledge of the food loss problem and engage in knowledge exchange with experts
• Create Food Loss reduction Ambassadors trained to lead campaigns and programs to inform the public about food loss and actions that could be taken to prevent it or re-utilize damaged products
• Promote entrepreneurship and create a business market for unsold produce
