BIG Challenges

BIG Challenges: a choice of several challenges will be presented on september 13th. BIG challenges can be done in several weeks up to 6 months, depending on the amount of time you can spend within your module.

  • We will provide for several generic BIG challenges that can be performed within your own education course in groups or alone. A few examples:
  1. Analyse the current food waste streams in your school, present an infographic of the waste streams and discuss possible solutions for these waste streams
  2. Choose a specific food waste hotspot (a spot where food waste is created), measure the food waste, discuss with stakeholders the reason behing the food waste, make an iceberg model analysis, create a food waste intervention and test the results. Did the intervention have an influence on the food waste?
  • We will also provide several specific BIG challenges from third parties such as food/ food service companies / other companies from which you can choose.
