Immerse yourself in the world of food
Terra Madre Giovani – We Feed The Planet is an event which will combine good food, dancing and drinks with content, inspiration and education. During its four days, participants will immerse themselves in the world of food and begin to understand the global food system. As they gain knowledge of the current system, they will also be provided with practical tools which can be used to take action in improving it for the future. This will be the event on the future of food and farming.
Four-days Academy Program
Young farmers, food producers and food professionals from all over the world are invited to join the program that is based on the model of the Academy. The four-day Acacemy Program aims at creating a fertile ground for new inspiration which will lead to the redefinition and creation of ideas and models related to responsibly providing the world with food. At the same time, the event will generate new connections, ideas, business startups, and active and hands-on solutions for the future food system in a good, clean and fair way.
By bringing together an international and interdisciplinary network of young farmers, small-scale producers, and other young food professionals, the event will allow them to gain knowledge and inspiration through each other. With this knowledge, inspiration and other practical tools, theses young people can start creating change in their own communities when they return home and continue into their future. The WFTP Academy Program will also be a compressed 'showcase' of the Food Academies that Slow Food Youth Network will launch in countries all over the world.
