Agroecology for the Sustainable Change We Need: Slow Food and Terra Madre 2024 as Pioneers in Incubating Solutions

The time for implementing concrete solutions to the challenges facing agriculture and the environment is now. It is in this spirit that we invite you to our workshop dedicated to agroecology, a field in which Slow Food stands as a beacon of credibility.

In an era when the health of our planet and our communities is under threat, it is crucial to focus on sustainable and responsible agricultural practices. Slow Food embraces and embodies this philosophy and puts it into action. Through years of commitment to promoting cultural and biological diversity, we have shown that an agroecological approach to food production and consumption is not only possible, but crucial for a sustainable future.

During the workshop, you will learn about the variety of Slow Food projects and initiatives that are changing the face of agriculture globally. From traditional farming practices to biodiversity conservation, and from food education to support for local communities, Slow Food is at the forefront of a movement that turns idealism into meaningful action.

Join us for an engaging and informative discussion where experts will share their visions and experiences about how agroecology can shape a healthier and fairer future for all. This isn’t just a workshop; it’s an opportunity for you, dedicated journalists, to be part of the change and to help spread a positive and hopeful narrative about the future of agriculture.

Speakers:

  • Edward Mukiibi, Slow Food President
  • Francesco Sottile, Professor of biodiversity and conservation of traditional rural landscapes at the University of Palermo (Italy) and Slow Food member
  • Dan Saladino, author of the book “Eating to Extinction: The World’s Rarest Foods and Why We Need to Save Them”
  • Leidy Casimiro Rodríguez, Farmer of Finca del Medio and first Cuban woman to obtain a doctorate in Agroecology. Professor at the University of Sancti Spíritus.

Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is organized by Slow Food, the City of Turin and the Piedmont Region. Join us in Parco Dora, Turin, from Thursday, September 26 to Monday, September 30, 2024, and explore how food can restore our relationship with nature. #TerraMadre2024
