About the issues that society faces much has been written and will continue to be. But about the courage of finding solutions and implementing them there is still a lot to be told.
Some time ago I’ve had a lovely conversation on the power and determination to change misconceptions and old-fashioned systems that no longer benefit society entirely, but instead have massive gaps. And during the discussion one nice example arouse: Plan Zheroes.
Plan Zheroes is an initiative created by citizens for the citizens. Its purpose is to inspire food businesses to give their surplus food to those who need it, instead of wasting it. The issue is complex and involves making the correct links but the solution the people at Plan Zheroes found is amazingly simple: by just accessing a map, shops, restaurants, cafes, catering companies and so on can easily find the closest place to give their food to: charities, local groups and more.
Therefore, in a context where incredibly large amounts of food go to waste whilst others lack it completely, PlanZheroes wants to inspire change. And they are on the right way to do so.
