Erasmus+ IN2FOOD National Seminar (Online) on Food Waste Management
The first local Erasmus+ IN2FOOD National Seminar on Food Waste Management themed “Sustainable Food Waste Management Towards National Food Security” was successfully held on 7 - 8 October 2021 and hosted by BINUS University. This seminar was organized collectively by Indonesian academics of the Erasmus+ IN2FOOD project consortium, together in a special collaboration with NUNI (Nationwide University Network in Indonesia)
Shocking Revelation from Indonesian Students
It was just a rare opportunity for 5 Indonesian campuses to have a joint international class with quite a large turnout! The topic was part of the IN2FOOD program to incorporate food waste management into our local curriculum as an interdisciplinary effort to create awareness and action into this global issue, particularly when Indonesia is the second largest food waste creator in the world to date, next to Saudi Arabia.
One Realistic Food Waste Solution: Education
After all was said and done, it boiled down to concrete action – Day #3 of IN2FOOD Stakeholder Meeting did just that – practical contribution of practitioners and environmentalists alike! Depok Smart Food City and Food Literacy Program became the talked about innovation in the awareness of Food Waste Management as expounded by Naurissa Biasini, M.I.Kom (a lecturer of UPJ within its IN2FOOD team) and clearly setting an example as a community service outreach project towards the care of our environment.
