Supported Event

Climate change forces us to speed up circularity; there is no time to waste. We need to find ways to revalue residual flows in the food chain, away from just dumping food waste to avoiding food waste.

The Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Hong Kong is pleased to present this Webinar to discuss challenges and opportunities regarding food and organic waste both in the Netherlands and Hong Kong. Join us for a discussion about needs and practical solutions in the Netherlands and Hong Kong.

You can register via this link before 15 June 2021. The Webinar link will be sent to you by email separately. For enquiries, feel free to contact hon-ea@minbuza.nl.
