Real food systems change for people and the planet is urgent and possible. The solutions are already here. Slow Food International President Edward Mukiibi will be holding a discussion open to the entire Slow Food network in Lazio and beyond.

He will discuss his two-year experience at the helm of the international movement, the global challenges that are becoming increasingly urgent and dramatic, and the solutions that Slow Food is proposing and pursuing in collaboration with numerous social movements. We will discuss food sovereignty and the viability of agroecology as a solution to transform the current food systems that are driving biodiversity collapse. He will present his perspective as an African farmer and activist, illustrating this with examples such as Gardens in Africa and Earth Markets, which are tangible manifestations of the concept of food sovereignty. These projects involve small-scale producers and food artisans who are responsible for the maintenance of ecosystems, biodiversity, and animal welfare while adhering to their traditions, producing food that is good, clean, and fair.

In the convivial spirit that distinguishes the association, the chat will be enlivened by a glass of wine or beer, and some tastings prepared by the Slow Food Alliance Cook Marco Morello. The fee will be 8 euros for Slow Food members and 10 euros for not members.

 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.
