The multistakeholer conference will take place on 18 May at the Umweltforum in Berlin, Germany and will bring champions of food waste reduction and valorization together for a day of presentations, discussions, interactive sessions and networking. Alongside these, participants will be inspired to re-think the issue of food waste with a performance by an improvisation theatre group, a food art installation and a catering concept that supports a sustainable food system. The event will also feature an Innovators’ Fair where food waste innovators are invited to present their projects and insights with a poster or stand. 
In the evening, a public event organized with REFRESH partner Feedback Global is further set to be fun and thought-provoking with a delicious meal cooked entirely from food that would have otherwise gone to waste. Dinner guests will be "edutained" with stimulating, interactive art and lively audio-visuals showing how diverse and exciting solutions to food waste can be.

Registration for REFRESH Food Waste 2017 is now closed. If you are an invited speaker or presenter and have not yet registered, please contact us at as soon as possible.
