Six restaurants in Leeuwarden and across Friesland will be working together with students from NHL Stenden and the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences to become more sustainable.

Omrop Fryslan reports that the goal of the sustainability initiative is to teach the chefs of the future how to prepare more environmentally-friendly meals and develop better waste disposal practices.
Students from NHL Stenden will help come up with new models to help restaurants become more sustainable, and the Amsterdam students will be creating teaching programmes for MBO (middle-level applied education) schools.
