In the beginning of our project, we asked ourselves, why is it happening?
We came up with these three explanations.
- Missing creativity: people don’t know what to do with the food they bought and leftovers.
- Disconnectedness to food: it seems that people do not see the value behind the food; it’s like a consumer good that can be replaced.
- Overconsumption: people buy more than they need.
We would like to do something about this, here in Uppsala. So we started the LivsmeDela project.
It consist of three parts:
- An online platform
- A Workshop
- Encourage people to share their leftovers with their friends.
We will tell you more about the seperate parts more in detail. Yay!
