Virtual Nordic Talks: Finding Solutions to Food Waste
Aug 21, 2021
2:00pm - 3:00pm PST

The National Nordic Museum will host a series of Nordic Talks, sponsored by the Nordic Council of Ministers, focused on the theme of food security and sustainability. During these talks, leading innovators and advocates for sustainable food practices and conservation will discuss solutions to contemporary issues in the areas of fine dining, food processing and packaging, and agriculture. The Museum has invited leaders from the Nordic region and the State of Washington to participate in this series of talks which will increase awareness and inspire positive actions for a more secure and sustainable world.

This series of talks consists of thematic panels led by industry leaders from the Nordic region and the United States, and discusses clever solutions to timely problems in the areas of fine dining, food processing and packaging, and agriculture. The talks in this series will be conducted virtually.

Panel Four: Finding Solutions to Food Waste

This panel brings to light the pervasive problem and indelible impact of food waste on the global economy, the environment, and our society. Approximately one-third of food produced is discarded, yet change is possible. Panelists offer creative solutions to combat food waste. Moderated by Suvi Järvelä-Hagström, Cultural Counselor and Head of Cultural Affairs, Embassy of Finland to the United States, the panel includes Albert Franch Sunyer, Head Chef and Co-Founder of zero-waste Restaurant Nolla in Helsinki; Åsa Sandberg, Head of Partnerships of a mobile application that connects consumers to unsold food (Too Good To Go); and Seattle-based writer on food and sustainability Jill Lightner. The event is sponsored by the Nordic Council of Ministers and held in partnership with the Embassy of Finland in the United States. The Nordic Talks is hosted by the National Nordic Museum and supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
