It's people at the center ofeleventh edition of the Non Waste Award, the project born on the initiative of Antonio Galdo, founder and director of the site Non with the scientific and organizational support of Luiss Guido Carli, which is aimed at young people, schools, businesses and associations to develop innovative ideas to protect environmental, economic and social sustainability.

This year the Award, whose registrations are open until October 30th, wants to collect sustainable ideas that bring together citizens and associations to highlight bottom-up initiatives that generate impact on people's lives, to face the next phases of post-covid.

L'Luiss Guido Carli University also this year marries the Don't Waste Award as an integral part of a path of awareness, attention and care towards sustainability issues.

From volunteering activities and seminar and experiential paths to offer children an enlarged reflection of the world around them.

The Non Waste Award is a further one for the Free International University of Social Studies training element for students, but also of openness to the University which, together with the world of associations, businesses, and schools, is the spokesperson for solutions for sustainable development of the physical and economic environment to achieve effective social progress.

Over the course of the various editions, more and more projects have been presented and have received recognition of the goodness of their initiatives, an unmistakable sign of growing social mobilization.
