Victorian Food Waste Action Summit 2024 Program – (Tues. May  28th t.b.c.)

The Action Summit is an event open to the wider public to participate in developing citizen-supported action plans to accelerate food waste reduction solutions. 

The morning involves the presentation of the findings of the 2024 Food Waste Climateers Industry Survey followed by expert panel discussions to explore ‘low-hanging’ opportunities to catalyse the  prevention, rescue and recycling levers. 

In the afternoon, there is a rotating workshop where participants rotate through 3 of the 10 tables to ‘hack action plans’ so that after the event, self organising teams can collaborate to accelerate progress.
