What?

Sustainable food is essential both for our health and for the quality of our environment. That is why we have partnered with others to launch a first Green Deal in Wallonia: the Green Deal Cantines Durables.

Through a partnership between private actors and the government, we want to achieve an ambitious common goal: serving sustainable food in 30% of all canteens in Wallonia by 2021.

Why participate?

Start a campaign in your canteen(s) or work with other organisations to make their canteens’ food policies more sustainable. By participating in this Green Deal, you contribute to achieving the common goal of making 30% of Walloon canteens sustainable by 2021.

How?

During this launch event in Namur, the exact content of this Green Deal will be presented. You will also get the opportunity to explore potential actions together with other actors involved. This is the ideal preparation for the officially signing of the Green Deal in November 2018.
