Climate change, rural-to-urban migration, cultural assimilation, and land grabbing pose serious threats to Indigenous peoples’ food systems, biodiversity, food security, local cultures, livelihoods, and territories globally.

Despite being the ones most affected by these convergent crises, it is women and young people who are on the front lines of global movements in support of human rights, people-centered climate solutions, food sovereignty, and the eradication of poverty and discrimination. It is essential to create an environment conducive to the success of their efforts.

In this conference, jointly organized by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and its Indigenous Peoples Assistance Facility (IPAF), along with the Slow Food Indigenous Peoples’ Network, Indigenous women and youth will tell us about the projects they are putting in place to tackle a host of complex challenges. These projects, which build on communities’ cultural and culinary identity and knowledge, are the result of a training program on agroecology and indigenous food systems supported by IFAD, IPAF, the Tamalpais Trust, and Table4Two.

Through a panel discussion and interactive dialogue, participants will exchange success stories and explore common strategies for overcoming obstacles and taking advantage of opportunities.

The panel of speakers will be published soon.

This event is free and open to all who are interested. To participate, please book a spot on the website (just click on the “Register” button on the event page and leave your email address).

Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is presented by Slow Food, the City of Turin, and the Piedmont Region. We look forward to seeing you at Parco Dora in Turin from Thursday, September 26 – Monday, September 30. Through food, we can rediscover ourselves as part of nature. #TerraMadre2024
