Cooperation project with Foodsharing Germany: “Foodsharing Akademie” crosses borders

The first international cooperation project between foodsharing Luxembourg and the foodsharing Academy in Germany has been running since the beginning of this year. With the help of funding from the EU’s Erasmus+ programme, the cooperation and exchange between the two food sharing networks in Luxembourg and Germany are to be expanded, the capacities of the partner organisation strengthened, and the implementation of educational activities in Luxembourg promoted. At the same time, both organisations can benefit from each other’s experiences and strengthen the international exchange in the fight against food waste. In the summer of 2022, the knowledge gained will be passed on in the form of a multiplier training course in Luxembourg where multipliers will be trained to implement educational activities.

Together with the Earthship project of CELL, we would like to implement joint educational projects. In mid-March, our project team visited the Earthship and its crew for the first time and received an impressive tour of the (not yet completely finished) building. The Earthship is built entirely from sustainable and recycled materials and aims to produce the human needs of light, heat, water and food in a self-sufficient and cycle-oriented way. A flagship for sustainable building and living!

Here at the Erdschiff, a wide range of educational programmes take place on the topic of sustainability and circular economy – and soon also on food waste and food appreciation. We are happy about the starting cooperation with this great project!

In June, we would like to hold our first educational seminar in Luxembourg. This will be aimed at teachers who can have the seminar hours recognised by the Institut de la Formation Education Nationale as further training hours. On the other hand, in the second part of the seminar, the Luxembourgish food sharers and all those who are interested in this topic would be addressed. For this, we need your input: what would you like to learn more about? What are the topics relating to foodsharing that interest you? Where could you use support from experienced coaches or team members?

If you have topics that interest you, would like to learn more about this project or would like to participate yourself – please write to our project coordinator Taalke Wolf: projektkoordination@foodsharing-akademie.org
