Free training on food waste reduction, reuse and repair

Zero Waste Scotland offer practical support in June and July to help you engage with your community.

Community organisations taking action on climate change are being offered training to help them to engage more effectively with their communities on food waste reduction, reuse and repair at free events in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness.

The Cascade Training will be delivered by Zero Waste Scotland in June and July and forms part of the Capacity Building Programme that we offer to community groups through our management of the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund.

Training sessions will include the latest information about food waste, reuse and repair, plus an introduction to lots of resources, activities and tools that can be used to engage with your community.

Russell Gill, Capacity Building Officer for Keep Scotland Beautiful commented:

"We encourage organisations to attend these practical sessions and learn more about how to engage with their communities on food waste, reuse and repair. The events are a great introduction to Zero Waste Scotland’s Love Food Hate Waste, Re-use and Love Your Clothes Campaigns, and the support they can offer you.

"We are delighted to once again work in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland and offer these events as part of the Climate Challenge Fund Capacity Building Programme."

Frank Stubbs, Programme Area Manager Consumer Engagement for Zero Waste Scotland said:

“Our cascade training will be a great opportunity for community organisations to find out what support and resources Zero Waste Scotland has to offer. 

"The training is very hands on and participants should leave with lots of practical tools and activities they can use to engage with their communities on food waste, reuse and repair.”
