The Youth Network extends its reach across the globe through community-based events like Disco Soupe celebrations, Eat-Ins, Food Film Festivals, and celebrating food culture and championing sustainability!
The Youth Network has some exciting news for you! This October 3-6, 2015, youth farmers, producers, chefs, and advocates take center stage at the World Expo in Milan. A youth convergence, Terra Madre Giovani - We Feed The Planet combines the Good, Clean, Fair food of Slow Food with inspiration and education. During the four-day youth gathering, an estimated 2000 young farmers, producers, and food professionals from over 100 countries will descend on Milan to immerse themselves in the world of food and gain a better understanding of the global food system while they are provided with practical tools which can be used to improve it for the future. This will be the event on the future of food and farming and will feature keynote speakers Alice Waters and Raj Patel, who will inspire and motivate delegates to act consciously, joyfully and strategically. The program aims at creating a fertile ground for shared excitement to create and redefine ideas and models for feeding the planet. As a result, We Feed the Planet will generate new connections, ideas, business startups, and inspire active and hands-on solutions for the truly just and sustainable food system.
Through events, such as the Schnippel Disko/Disco Soupe, Eat-in and Food Films Festival in Amsterdam, SFYN is reducing food waste, celebrating food culture/taste and championing sustainability. Want to get involved? Get in touch with us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or read more here...
