Informing. Raising awareness. Mobilising. To complement the support we give to our African partners, our education in development and awareness-raising, as well as our advocacy with decision-makers, are vital. Because combating hunger starts here, with consistent and responsible behaviour and decisions.
Our priority themes: food sovereignty, sustainable agriculture, inclusive rural financing.

Action against food waste
Held in October 2013 at Luxembourg’s main railway station to mark World Food Day, members of the public had the opportunity to try, free of charge, a meal made out of organic products whose sell-by-date had recently passed and were therefore destined for the rubbish bin. The goal was to think about our production and consumption of food.
