Event description

Description

Everyone on Earth is affected by the impacts of food and plastic waste. Join our conversation on leaving no one behind in the collective journey towards SDG12 and more sustainable consumption and production patterns. With a focus on the hospitality sector, this discussion will present practical initiatives and strategies from those leading on implementation of SDG 12 through the One Planet network.

Real people, real solutions, One Planet. Please RSVP by 20th September.

The event will showcase the One Planet network as the implementation mechanism for SDG 12 and present some strategies, approaches and cases of how to reduce food waste and single-use plastics in the hospitality sector (hotel, restaurants). The event will envision success. To be successful we need to work jointly together: provide information for consumers, communicate best practice and offer support through trainings and implementation.

Join us at 9:00 for breakfast. We start at 9:30.
