Jun 03, 2022

Environment & climate Linked project:
Food Wave


Are you a Municipality who is sensitive to sustainable food production and consumption patterns and wants to work with young people? You still have a chance to get your activity funded by the Food Wave Project!

The Food Wave Project – co-funded by the EU under the Development Education and Awareness Raising Programme (DEAR) and promoted by the Municipality of Milan together with ActionAid Italia, ACRA, Mani Tese and 25 project partners in 16 countries, including ALDA – will support grass-root initiatives in the field of climate-friendly food consumption behaviors and involve smaller youth organizations interested in joining the action but lacking the necessary means to do so.

The first call for proposals of the Food Wave Project was launched and directed to youth-led small Civil Society Organizations promoting sustainable production and consumption patterns to fight climate change. Now it is time for the second round of the second call addressed to Cities and Municipalities to support grass-root initiatives in the field of climate-friendly food consumption behaviors!
