When the circular economy becomes handi-solidarity: launch of the European Solifoodwaste network

Within the framework of the European Solifoodwaste project (conducted since autumn 2019), Pour La Solidarité (PLS) invites you to the launch of the first European network of organizations committed to fighting food waste and to the (socio-)professional integration of the disabled on Tuesday 9 March.

In Europe, nearly 88 million tons of food ends up in the garbage*. This figure is absurd at a time when we are talking about responsible consumption and the resilience of the European food system. It is imperative that a shift in the way we consume and produce must take place.

At the same time, 16% of the working population in Europe is affected by a disability, and this proportion of the population is still experiencing too many difficulties integrating into the job market; the average activity rate for the disabled is only 48.7%, compared with 72.5% for so-called able-bodied people.

 

These two issues have a priori nothing to do with each other and yet . Solifoodwaste is a European project that aims to simultaneously meet these challenges by developing economic activities to recycle unsold food by disabled people.

Convinced that the effect of the project will be all the more important if it is carried out collectively, the SFW partnership invites you on Tuesday, March 9 (9:30 am to 12:00 pm) to the videoconference launching the very first European network of organizations committed to fighting food waste and to the (socio-)professional integration of the disabled.
