Meet Helén Williams and Fredrik Wikström at the Gothenburg Book Fair2022-09-22
On 22-25 September, the Gothenburg Book Fair returns to the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre and welcomes international and national authors and a book-loving audience hungry for new knowledge. This year, Karlstad University is one of the organisers at Forskartorget, and Helén Williams and Fredrik Wikström participates in the programme.
Stoppa matsvinnet! – en förpackad lösning
(Stop food waste! – a packaged solution)
Thursday 22 September at 14.50–15.05
One tenth of our climate footprint is due to food waste. Helén Williams and Fredrik Wikström talk about why food is wasted and what consumers, companies and authorities should think about in order to reduce food waste by half. When is it environmentally justified to use small packaging and what type of packaging should be removed?
– I want more people to understand the role of packaging in reducing food waste and that packaging design affects us more than we think – for better or for worse! says Fredrik Wikström.
Several researchers from Karlstad University
Forskartorget has been part of the Gothenburg Book Fair for several years. Together with universities, university colleges, foundations, authorities, companies, book publishers, organisations and other actors, Forskartorget presents a popular science programme.
This year, Karlstad University has two contributions to the programme, one of which is Helén Williams and Fredrik Wikström’s talk on food waste. Several researchers from the university will appear and talk about their research, see Karlstad University’s programme and who will be attending the fair via the link below.
