Many of the most biodiverse regions of the planet are in the homelands and traditional territories of Indigenous peoples and local, small-scale communities.

But policymakers continue to ignore the rights, ancestral knowledge, and voices of Indigenous peoples when making decisions about how to deal with the climate crisis, even though these decisions have direct impacts on Indigenous communities’ lands and resources.

Being on the side of nature requires respecting the rights of Indigenous peoples. It means recognizing communities’ rights to control their own food systems in accordance with their culture and identity, using local seeds and agroecological practices. It means abandoning the status quo, which is abusive, and which has failed to deliver solutions. In this conference, representatives of Indigenous communities will share their perspectives on human rights and demonstrate that their cultures and food systems contain the tools to address the challenges of climate change.

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). We recommend arriving at the Arena 10 minutes before the start of the event. The organizers reserve the right to reassign your seat if you are not present within 5 minutes of the start.

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
