FORUM 16 is one of the several organizations that are local partners in the project “W-S-S Effect – Building capacities and cultivating accountability for real alleviation of (food) poverty”.
This project isa 36 months project financed by the European Union under IPA CSF program 2016-2017. The project is implemented by three action partners: “Food for All – Food Bank Macedonia”, Organisation of Women from Strumica, SIBAHE – Slovenian Food Bank, and an associate partner: European Federation of Food Banks (FEBA). The action aims to build civil society organisations’ capacities to promote anti-food waste and pro-surplus culture among students and consumers in general, as well as to advocate for better food waste and food poverty policies and programs.
The activities of the local partner organizations include workshops, networking events, presentations, advocacy campaigns, lobbying and raising public awareness about the topic (media campaign, round tables, etc.) and call for financial support for micro projects.
