This year carries a simple but important theme: “Seven billion dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.” More specifically, the goal of the global event is to get people to stop wasting so much food.
“Overconsumption of food is detrimental to our health and the environment,” said actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio. “Land degradation, declining soil fertility, unsustainable water use, overfishing and marine environment degradation are all lessening the ability of the natural resource base to supply food.”
