DAY 2 // SUNDAY // OCTOBER 4
Superstudio Più – Red Room
Masterclass: Serge Latouche // 10.30-12.00 // Red Room
Our production system creates inequalities, exploitation and subjugation. Our tools for measuring wealth, such as GDP, are based on financial and monetary standards that do not correspond with real communities and the well-being of individuals. In this conference economist Serge Latouche, "degrowth" theorist and anti-capitalist thinker, will tell Terra Madre Giovani - We Feed the Planet’s delegates that another way to produce and to manage economic relationships is possible: a way that is fairer and more humane.
Discussion: Migrants and the Food System // 12.45-14.15 // Red Room
Moderator: Francesco Mele (Slow Food)
Speakers: Maria Letizia Gardoni (President of Young Coldiretti), Abderrahmane Amajou (Slow Food International), Nicola Gratteri (Public Prosecutor, focussed on mafia), Mbaye Diongue (Association of Senegalese People in Italy)
Our global food system influences migration through land grabbing, ocean grabbing and dumping excess production into the markets of low income countries. Many migrants from these countries are in turn exploited by the same food system that causes them to move. This conference will focus on two aspect of this: how land grabbing, monoculture and the privatization of common land are forcing a huge number of people to leave their home countries, and how this same global food system is exploiting migrants as low-wage and rightless workers.
Discussion: Edible Insects – Novel or Novelty? // 15.00-16.30 // Red Room
Roberto Flore (Head Chef at the Nordic Food Lab) & Afton Halloran (GREEiNSECT PhD Fellow)
Over 2000 species of insects are consumed around the world. Despite this, many countries in Europe have not yet approved the consumption of insects. In this presentation Afton Halloran (GREEiNSECT) and Roberto Flore (Nordic Food Lab) will explore how different cultures have utilized insects in their diets, how a variety of insects are prepared in a gastronomic context and some of the other benefits of this ingredient. Moreover, they will discuss how policy and perception can influence the future of harvested and farmed insects. Then, they will hand the microphone over to you, encouraging a fruitful discussion on this diverse food.

Discussion: Global Trade vs. Small Scale Farming // 13.15-14.45 // Purple Room
Speakers: Roberto Moncalvo (President of farmers association Coldiretti), Marta Messa (Slow Food International), Patrick Holden (Founder, Sustainable Food Trust)
The European Union and the USA are currently discussing a new bilateral global trade agreement known as TTIP. This agreement aims to accelerate the movement of commodities across borders with fewer limits and controls. In this conference we will try to develop a clear image of the situation and discuss why the decision process is neither public nor democratic. At the same time we will discuss the potential impact of TTIP on small scale producers' lives with European and American farmers. Is free trade really free for everyone?
Discussion: Healthy Soils for a Healthy Life // 15.30-17.00 // Purple Room
Speakers: Edie Mukiibi (Vice-President Slow Food International), Francisco Reche (International Year of Soils, FAO), Lucrezia Caon (International Year of Soils, FAO)
Soil is a finite resource whose degradation is not recoverable within a human lifetime. Even though the most widely recognized function of soil is its support for food production, nowadays 33 percent of soils are moderately to highly degraded owing to erosion, salinization, compaction, acidification and chemical pollution. How can sustainable management of the world’s soil resources reverse the present soil degradation trend and ensure future food security? The aim is to tackle the problems facing soils and food security from a technical perspective, with the help of FAO experts, and from a global youth perspective, which sees new opportunities for action, different approaches to new solutions, and the potential for synergies to help eradicate hunger.
This discussion is co-organized with FAO.
Discussion: Intercultural Gastronomy: Indigenous Seeds, Ingredients and Principles for a Sustainable Future // 17.45-19.15 // Purple Room
Moderators: Bastien Beaufort (Slow Food Youth Network France), Sergio Waranà Sateré Mawé (Waranà fair trade Project) and Arnaud Deladeriere (Indigenous Food Systems, FAO)
This conference aims to present and connect the Young Indigenous Network of Slow Food. Open to each and every participant (indigenous and non-indigenous), it will showcase some key indigenous traditional products, customary myths, ancestral seeds, ecological knowledge and native food systems. More than a hundred young indigenous delegates, representative of about eighty groups from more than forty countries located in three continents, are expected to attend. Large spaces for material and immaterial exchanges between the participants will be allocated.
Superstudio Più – Yellow Room
Discussion: A New Strategy for the commons // 10.45-12.15 // Yellow Room
Moderator: Michele Fino (University of Gastronomic Sciences)
Speakers: Habtamu Belay (PhD researcher law & economics), Luigi Russi (PhD fellow, Sociology of organization, International University College of Turin)
Worldwide, common resources like land, soil, water and energy are threatened more and more while spaces for a community-managed approach to primary resources are wearing ever-more thin. In this conference we will try to step away from the old ‘Tragedy of the Commons’-narrative towards a new strategy of preservation and promotion within the global economic system that threatens them.
Discussion: Ocean Grabbing and Fisheries // 12.15-13.45 // Yellow Room
Speakers: Michéle Mesmain (Slow Fish), Jessica Anahì De Francesco (Argentinian fisher), Spencer Montgomery (US fisher), Mads Barbesgaard (AfrikaKontakt),
Stealing our Oceans - Ocean-grabbing and How to Fight It: Our ocean resources are being stolen from under our noses, often in the name of the environment. Privatization, commodification, consolidation, and speculation, among others, are leading to dwindling resources and increased marginalization of our communities, loss of jobs and local knowledge. It is time to step up to this challenge, expose the phenomenon, involve citizens, restore local governance and rigged markets, and rebuild robust links between communities of producers and communities of co-producers. Young voices will gather here to discuss how this is being done.
Discussion: Food and Finance // 14.30-16.00 // Yellow Room
Moderator: Carmine Garzia (Economics Professor, University of Gastronomic Sciences)
Speakers: Gabriele Corte (Responsible for Italy, Banca Svizzera Italiana), Cesare Baldrighi (President of Consorzio Formaggio Grana Padano), Mauro Castellano (Director of Ersel Investment Club, Private Equity Fund), Claudio Bongiovanni (President of European Cereals Stock Exchange)
Food and finance, one of the trickiest and most complex dilemmas of the modern food system. What are the main drivers for market speculation in food? Is it possible to rethink food as a basic necessity rather than a commodity? Carmine Garzia, professor of management at the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo, will question finance professionals on these topics.
Discussion: Expo 2015 – A Balance // 16.45-18.30 // Yellow Room
Speakers: Roberto Burdese (Slow Food International), Giosuè De Salvo (Expo dei Popoli Network), Mitchell Davis (Creative Director of the US Pavilion in Expo),Gaetano Pascale (President of Slow Food Italy)
Expo 2015, the first world Expo dedicated explicitly to food, is about to come to a close. This conference will try to analyse what has been done in trying to improve the global food system and the goals have been reached so far. Can our network learn something from this experience? How can we move forward once Expo has finished? And has the discussion on the future of food been affected by this major event?
Regional Meeting: Italy // 19.00-20.30 // Yellow Room
Your chance to meet up with all participants from Italy.
Superstudio Più – Blue Room
Discussion: Meat and Animal Welfare // 10.30-12.00 // Blue Room
Moderator: Janno Lanjouw (Slow Food Youth Network The Netherlands)
Speakers: Magdalena and Christoph Zimmer (German producers), Miroslav Panushka (Butcher), Elisa Bianco (Compassion in World Farming), Anselme Bakudila Mbuta (Slow Food)
Today, the level of meat consumption in Europe and the US is not compatible with animal welfare and environmental sustainability. Producing good, clean and fair meat is still possible, but to do so, the first step is to reduce meat consumption in the Global North. What do researchers and producers within our network expect from the coming years?
Discussion: Seeds for the Future, The Future of Seeds // 12.45-14.15 // Blue Room
Moderator: Cinzia Scaffidi (Vice-President Slow Food Italy)
Speaker: Susanna Cenni (Member of the Italian Parliament), Paola Migliorini (Professor at University of Gastronomic Sciences)
Seeds ensure human life on earth. Without seeds there is no agriculture and without seeds there is no food. Nonetheless we can see that there is a massive seeds privatization process that bounds small-scale farmers to depend on a seed industry rife with patent ownership. In this way biodiversity is also threatened and is in constant decline. In this conference we will try to comprehend the current situation and consider reactions to this process.
Discussion: Food Policies - Public & Private Responsibility // 15.00-16.30 // Blue Room
Moderator: Maurizio Mariani (Eating City international platform)
Speakers: Stefania Amato (City of Milan), Andrea Di Stefano (Novamont), Robin Gourlay (Drink and Food Policy, Scottish Government), Corporate agrifood company
Four different experiences on how the private and public sector can work together on food policies. Eating city - international platform for the discussion of the food policies, a private company that works with the public sector, Andrea Di Stefano from Novamont (a bioplastic and biochemical company), Robin Gourlay from the public service of Scotland and Stefania Amato from the City of Milan will discuss the relationship between public and private food services.
Discussion: Access to Land and Landgrabbing // 17.15-18.45 // Blue Room
Speakers: Marta Antonelli (PhD fellow, University of Roma Tre), Edie Mukiibi (Vice-President of Slow Food International), Michele Di Salvo (Blogger & writer), Yon Fernandez de Larrinoa (Indigenous People, FAO)
Access to land is a recognised universal right but in many countries communities are facing land grabbing, deportations and deprivation of their lands. In this conference we will try to understand the mechanism of land grabbing and explore possible strategies to render the right to land and primary resources a reality for all.

Cooking Sections // 16.30-17.30 // Green Room
Through an installation and a public tasting, Cooking Sections proposes the term 'Climavore', the idea of a diet that does not follow four seasons but incorporates new time spans and non-human agents to reshape landscape and climate. [Climavores] challenges the relevance of common concepts such as seasonal, local and sustainable diets, in an era induced by water scarcity, deforestation and exhaustion of natural resources.

‘CAP, What’s Cooking’ is a European project that will host a series of cookery events, in Poland, France, the Netherlands, the UK and Denmark, amongst others, on farms across Europe to make the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) more ‘digestible’ for the general public. Based on these events, in April 2016 a CAP Cook Book will be published with basic CAP information, farm portraits and delicious recipes from local chefs that you can try at home. At this kick-off event, participants will gain an in depth introduction into the project and a small taste of what the different cookery events will be like.
'CAP, What's Cooking' is organised by Groupe de Bruges, in collaboration with the Slow Food Youth Network and CEJA, the European Young Farmers Council. The project is funded by DG Agri of the European Commission. For more information and to sign up to the newsletter, go to this website.
