This is the question Cremona (Italy), Leiria (Portugal) and Sabadell (Spain) will answer at the upcoming UrbanWINS webinar, organised by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability – taking place next Tuesday 12th March, from 11 to 12.30.

The activity is part of UrbanWINS, an EU-funded project that aims at developing and testing methods for designing and implementing eco-innovative strategic plans for waste prevention and management in eight pilot cities: Cremona, Albano Laziale, Pomezia and Torino (Italy); Leiria (Portugal); Bucharest (Romania), and Manresa and Sabadell (Spain). Among their initiatives, the three speakers at the webinar have decided to tackle food waste.

Cremona is implementing a last minute market for recovered and donated food surpluses and expiring products. Leiria is developing a guide for food waste reduction addressing restaurants, canteens, bars, catering services and citizens. Sabadell is hosting a programme of activities to raise awareness on the topic.

The network FoodWIN will also join as a speaker at the webinar to present their view on the importance of fighting food waste from a city perspective.
