In 2008, Selina Juul founded the Stop Wasting Food movement (Stop Spild Af Mad) in Denmark, which has today become a national and international movement against food waste, initiating hundreds of project and activities, engaging hundreds of volunteers and students, collaborating with governments, EU and UN – and creating tangible results. Lately, every 2nd Dane has become aware of the importance of fighting food waste – and the numbers from the Danish Environmental Protection Agency reveal that Danish households have reduced food waste by 14.000 tons within 6 years.
