Sharek Bitbarek is an initiative seeking to redesign the way we consume, interact with and waste food. This talk will walk us through the fight against food waste globally, and how the project was conceived. By introducing design thinking tools and human-centered design, the project aims to generate social impact and turn a generation of wasters into better recyclers, using food waste as a stepping stone for a new sustainability movement in the country.
