Food Wave launches a call for proposals for a better global food system

Dec 17, 2020

Environment & climate Linked project:
Food Wave

21 projects ideas will receive a contribution of up to 3000 € to support the fight against climate change and create a fair and sustainable global food system!

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 17 countries, including ALDA – aims at creating awareness on sustainable patterns of food consumption and production for climate change mitigation, activating young people and enabling them to influence institutional decisions.

What is the objective of the call for proposals? 

The Project, under the coordination of the European Association for Local Democracy – ALDA, established a sub-granting scheme that will contribute to the Food Wave overall objective, supporting grass-root initiatives in the field of climate-friendly food consumption behaviors and involving smaller youth organizations interested in supporting the action but lacking the necessary means to do so.
