What is it about?

Why is it important?

The study presents several interventions in different higher education courses that can serve as a guide for its application in other educational institutions. The impact of reducing food waste is relevant in our current society, where abundance and hunger coexist.


The authors of this work would like this type of intervention to encourage young people to co-create their own initiatives that encourage more responsible consumption habits in their peers.
