The large quantities of waste that are constantly produced are valuable raw materials. Waste prevention is therefore of great importance. The first waste prevention program of the federal and state governments responds to this. However, the approaches often lack practical relevance, which is why a stronger concretization and binding nature of waste prevention is necessary.

The project will identify these through analysis and workshops with stakeholders in four thematic areas (textiles, disposables, event management, and education/intercultural communication). Through innovative discussion and participation formats, concrete approaches to action and instruments are to be developed that are jointly supported and implemented by the relevant stakeholders. With webinars, this will be integrated into the design of the questions and thus also the workshops, in order to also develop a stronger agreement of shared responsibility for the approaches discussed there.

A key solution approach for a more sustainable diet is the design of fair food environments, which is understood to include healthier and more sustainable mass catering (GM). Bremen already recognized this task in 2018 with its "Action Plan 2025 - Healthy Nutrition in Community Catering in the Municipality of Bremen" and set itself the goal of increasing the quality of community catering and switching the range to 100 percent organic and, as far as possible, regional products.
