What is food waste and how much waste is there?
A game-exhibit explains this topic and makes it into an experience, a journey constituted by three moments: “The waste chain”, “One thing leads to the next”, “A world of waste”. It is a project that seeks to show children and make them directly experience the causes for food waste along the entire chain (from growing to harvest, to distribution, to transformation, to sales, to consumption). The children, with games and creativity, will learn to reduce food waste and discover new products and materials obtained from recycling agricultural and food waste.
