Stop Wasting Food

(12:20-12:40)

We are 7 billion people on the earth, nearly 925 million of us are starving. Nevertheless 1.3 billion tons of food are thrown away each year - enough to feed 3 billion people. Stop Wasting Food has grown from a small Facebook group to become the biggest campaign against food waste in Denmark. The campaign works with partners in the EU and the UN, and has engaged thousands of Danes, as well as politicians and famous personalities. Since 2008, Russian-born Selina Juul been become Denmark's leading expert on food waste and has focused on putting the topic on the agenda through a series of articles in Danish and international media, television shows and conferences. Juul has been nominated for this year's Nordic Council Environment Prize.
