Since 1851, the Universal Exhibition has served as a stage for humanity’s most ambitious goals, an opportunity for sharing innovations, technological advances and discoveries. Every five years since then, the event has provided an opportunity to bring together citizens from around the world to address critical issues of universal interest. The 2015 edition theme is “Feeding the Planet” and Slow Food is there contributing the experience of an international organization that has always had a holistic vision of food and agriculture. No other challenge is more important than ensuring nourishment for humans and the Earth: feeding the planet sustainably and protecting natural resources, safeguarding the social and economic well-being of producers and protecting people’s health, while guaranteeing good, clean and fair food for everyone.
Slow Food is starting today an immense challenge: To bring those who most deserve to be there to the Expo 2015 stage. Namely the farmers who put their commitment, labor, heart and soul into the food they produce. Farmers, food artisans, fishers, nomads, Indigenous Peoples… who are feeding the world’s population with responsibility, dignity and passion. We call them small-scale producers, family farmers and food community members who protect and cultivate the planet and produce our daily food.
So we will bring them to Expo 2015 through our Terra Madre Youth network and Slow Food International has launched hundreds of initiatives to fund the trip of the young farmers from all over the world to bring their perspective on how to Feed the Planet at the Expo 2015 in Milan, October 3-6th, 2015!
