Bring Your Own Bowl (BYOB) is a food waste behaviour change and student community building intervention. Primarily for students based in University accommodation, BYOB focuses on creating social networks through the shared enjoyment of free tasty surplus food.
The events engage students on key food waste messages and provide ideas for personal action. The name symbolises the fact that all students have to do is bring their own bowl; we take care of the rest. BYOB is run collaboratively between The Students’ Union at UWE’s Green Team and HallsLife programmes.
The aim of the Green Team is to create and empower student-led sustainability change. HallsLife is a partnership between The Students’ Union at UWE and UWE Accommodation to build a grass-roots sense of community amongst UWE students and foster a sense of belonging within University managed accommodation and within the student community.
Top 3 learnings:
1. We harnessed the power of partnerships to build mutually shared goals for successful outcomes.
2. We confirmed that free food is a useful tool to drive student engagement!
3. A campaign needs maximum three key messages/actions for greatest impact/behaviour change.
