Did you know the average household in Britain throws away about a
third of the food they buy? Would you like to reduce the waste produced
in your community?
Our training can help! We're looking for people who are keen to gain
the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence to encourage people
in your local community to minimise their waste through home composting
and food waste reduction.
You can help your local community save up to £420 per person
a year on food bills, and how to stop wasting so much grub!
On our training course you will learn to run games and activities
so you can engage with different members of the community and encourage
food waste reduction locally.
But don't expect to be sitting down during this training session!
We won't just tell you what you can do... we are going to do it with
you! We will facilitate games and activities with you and your course
mates so you can test the techniques before you put them into practice
in your community.
If you complete the training session successfully you will be awarded
with a certificate and a resource kit to help you start spreading
the waste reduction message.
There will be one training session per district and they will be held
in community centres and village halls with exact places to be confirmed
once you book a place for the session. The session will run from 6:30
pm to 8:30 pm aprox.
