2nd Zagreb County Ecological Agriculture Festival and lectures
NESTLE – workshops for the youngest
One of the best ways to empower people is by providing them with knowledge. As part of our Velika Gorica Living Lab activity, we have shared this knowledge with over 300 children. Our goal was to give them a comprehensive understanding of our CRFS, so we decided to narrate the story of an apple to them.
At this year’s event, the 22nd GASTRO TUROPOLJA, on Thursday, October 12th the Round table is organized with the topic Plan for prevention and reduction of food waste generation, where the Ministry of Agriculture will present the Plan, the City of Zagreb will present the Voluntary Agreement as signatories, as well as the goals and activities that are planned, and VG Čistoća (city waste association ) will present Biodegradable waste and the situation in the City.
