Kick-off Meeting - Bucharest
Zero Waste: An innovative approach to food waste management in order to educate young people to value food and reduce the waste
Kick-off Meeting – Bucharest, ROMANIA
6th -7th April 2022
During the first week of April 2022, the 8 partners involved in “ZERO WASTE” project had the chance to meet face-to-face for the first time in Romania, where the coordinating institution, Liceul Teoretic “Marin Preda” organised the Kick-off Meeting. It was an occasion for all organisations to introduce themselves and to present their main activities, the participants once again realized that, even if they come from different backgrounds, they share the same preoccupation and concern for the well-being of our planet.
All partners have previously been involved in various activities or projects related to protecting the environment and have now joined forces, experience and expertise in an innovative approach to food waste management, being driven by the common desire to educate teachers, students and parents alike to value food and reduce the waste.
The representatives of the partner institutions involved in “Zero Waste” project had the possibility to review the general and specific objectives of their Erasmus+ cooperation partnership in school education, as well as to go through the main activities and responsibilities assumed through the application; special attention was given to the four project’s results which will be developed during the 2 years of collaboration.
Other issues regarding the management and implementation of the project, such as dissemination, quality assurance strategy, evaluation instruments, were addressed and the participants set certain deadlines for the activities which were going to be carried out in the next period of time.
