Youth Action Against Food Waste (YAAFW)

At present, there is high food wastage in the UAE with annual average food waste per capita at 225 kg (one of the highest globally).

The YAAFW initiative will involve a comprehensive educational program and workshops targeting Dubai youths (across primary, secondary, and tertiary students) to raise awareness about food waste, promote sustainable consumption habits, and provide practical strategies to reduce food wastage in their daily lives.

The key goals of the project would be to increase understanding of youths and students around food waste, and actively reduce food waste on a daily basis.
