Food Wave is one of the programs of the DEAR initiative, which seeks to improve the quality of life for the world’s population through circular economy projects. Food is an important challenge for sustainable development, especially in light of raising young people’s awareness of the importance of fresh, locally grown food.
Goals of Food Wave:
- Raising awareness of young people about the importance of local food with the aim of reducing environmental impacts.
- Encourage self-preparation of food and avoid fast, often unhealthy diets.
- Connecting youth organizations and finding synergies between different programs.
Wcycle Institute Maribor is part of a consortium of a total of 29 partners from around the world. The project will be implemented in cooperation with the Office for Youth of the Municipality of Maribor, since we have already harmonized the content of the application with their youth programs.
