WE FEED THE PLANET
Feeding the planet is the biggest challenge our generation has to face. And with EXPO 2015 focusing on exactly this, the world is looking to Milan for answers. We need all young farmers, food producers and food professionals from all over the world to show who really feeds the planet and to come together to discuss the future of food and farming.
However, it is senseless to discuss how to feed the planet in the future without the presence of the young generation, especially small-scale producers. With their closeness to the land and practical knowledge, they do much more than produce food. They teach us how to protect seeds, planets, animal breeds, water, soil and other non-renewable sources of our nutrition. They can show us how their work is about nourishment, but also about the joy of living: the happiness that comes from good and beautiful things, from sharing, and from the wisdom that preserves the Earth in order to leave it in better shape for future generations.
With this picture in mind, a picture made up of thousands of faces, hands, languages and knowledge, the Slow Food Youth Network and Slow Food have set themselves on an immense challenge: to bring the discussions on the future of food and farming those who deserve to be there the most. In other words, to bring small-scale producers from all over the world to Terra Madre Giovani - We Feed The Planet.
The Slow Food Youth Network and Slow Food are asking all young farmers, food producers and food professionals from all over the world to show who really feeds the planet through a discussion on the future of food and farming:
Come to Milan! Come and share your ideas. Provide everyone with the solutions the world is searching for but will never find without listening to you.
