" I am both honoured and hugely excited to be a Millennium Fellow! Working with likeminded activists and being part of a global community, I look forward to learning from my peers whilst tackling socially relevant issues. There is no doubt that this will be an invaluable experience and accelerator of the contribution I can make to sustainable development. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Less is More
The Less is More project encourages people to be mindful of the food they eat in an
attempt to minimise food waste. Here are the main ways the project does this:
1) Encouraging staff to actively inform customers of a smaller size meal/drink option
2) Educating the public through posters, and talks, on the impact of food waste, and how what we waste here translates to food poverty elsewhere. Donations are also collected.
3) Homeless drives to help those in need
This project involves working with the UCL (University College London) Sustainability Team to implement the scheme on a small scale first.
