    United Kingdom and Brazil INterventions for Food Loss and Waste Education in Secondary Schools (BINLESS): A case study of collaboration between schools from Brazil and United Kingdom


    This project aims to reduce food wastes in schools in Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Shropshire (UK) through behavioural changes and sustainable choices.


    Globally, food contributes to around one-third of the greenhouse emissions more than aviation and transport (Climate action; UNSDG 13). It forces us ask ourselves how often we think about the impact of the food we eat on the environment? Brazil has committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target 12 and 3 to halve per capita food waste consumption by 2030. Hence, the reduction of food waste has emerged as a priority on the national agenda. Similarly, UK institutions are committed to promoting UN sustainable development goals to improve environmental management and improving living standards. The intriguing question about how we will feed the world in 2050 challenges policymakers and researchers considering the impact of our food choices and food waste on climate change. Thus, this project aims to reduce food wastes in  schools in Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Shropshire (UK) through behavioural changes and sustainable choices.
