Skåne Sustainability

How do you make restaurant food from waste? How do you farm food in the middle of a city? Do you really have to work weekends in the restaurant business? What does it mean to unite under a one woman, one vote enterprise that helps immigrant women in Skåne find work? With the help of Tourism in Skåne, we visited businesses and social enterprises to answer these questions and discover the people who work and run sustainable food businesses and economic sustainable projects.

Four stories of people who have succeeded despite the odds. The challenges, highs and lows, the warmth and friendship, in a business that is traditionally cut-throat and non-progressive. How do we stop wasting food and how can we help each other to be economically independent, to have a work life balance that really means something? People want change, but how can we connect you and me and make the world of food sustainable for future generations?

Oslo has pledged to become a carbon neutral city by 2030, and this film highlights how urban planners, politicians, and businesses of different kinds work hard to ensure a sustainable future for the destination and its people.
