Our food chain is full of surprises and our food is handled by people you will most likely never meet. Where did your coffee come from? Who grew your cocoa for your chocolate? Who made your bread? We are about to start a journey together, finding our way through the food systems.

In every step we take, we’ll walk side by side with one of our activists around the world. These are farmers, chefs and everyone in between. These people are all contributing to a more sustainable food system and they try to enhance access to good, clean and fair food. But we will also listen to stories of indigenous culture and knowledge, which can inspire us to think in a different way.

We want to give a stage to the people, whose voices are often not taken into consideration, or who are simply overlooked in the debate around food. We want to demonstrate that we all contribute to a more sustainable food system, that everyone has a story to tell and that there's a lesson in every single one of them.

    Slow Food Goes Brussels: reconciling food and health

    Slow Food Goes Brussels: reconciling food and health

    Food and health are intimately connected. But while the impact of the overconsumption of ultra-processed food on our body is well known by all of us, other negative phenomena directly linked to the production of food are not. Although they endanger human health, but also that of the planet.
    During Slow Food’s international event on sustainable food systems, Terra Madre, that took place last September in Turin, Alice Poiron interviewed three remarkable speakers to shed light on the complex relationship between food and health, and on which policy solutions exist to reconcile them, in a world where industrial, polluting farming is the norm, not the exception:
    Nikolai Pushkarev: Senior policy officer at European Public Health Alliance 
    Corinna Hawkes: Director of the Centre for Food Policy, City, University of London
    Nina Wolff: Director of Slow Food Germany and board member of Slow Food International

    Can municipalities create sustainable food environments? The examples of Curitiba (BR) and Bergamo (IT).

    Can municipalities create sustainable food environments? The examples of Curitiba (BR) and Bergamo (IT).

    In today's episode we will find out how municipalities can contribute to creating sustainable food environments. I had the chance to interview Thays Thatiane Padilha, previous project planner and international relationships manager at the secretariat for food security at the municipality of Curitiba, Brazil. Thays will tell us more about different inspiring initiatives such as how the municipality has built an urban farm at the city centre of Curitiba, how they create community gardens in empty spaces and what are the solidarity tables and the restaurants of the people. 
    In the second half of the episode we will have a conversation with Davide Zarri, project officer at the municipality of Bergamo, in Italy.  Davide will explain how different public initiatives have been developed to foster sustainable food environments. We will learn about the biodiversity valley, the project of organic school canteens, the food policy council and much more. So, get ready for an exciting episode where you can hear of public initiatives that can be potentially replicated in your municipality as well! 
    Guests: Thays Thatiane Padilha, municipality of Curitiba; Davide Zarri, municipality of Bergam; Gabriela Bonilha, SFYN Brazil national coordinator.Host, production & editing: Valentina Gritti.Music: Leonardo Prieto Dorantes.Design: Pop-eye studio.

    Slow Food Goes Brussels: the Global Food Crisis Explained

    Slow Food Goes Brussels: the Global Food Crisis Explained

    Since the war in Ukraine broke out, the words “food security” and "food crisis" are on everyone’s lips. The conflict has had rippling effects on millions of people’s lives, with President Putin holding the specter of hunger over their head. Ukraine and Russia being such big producers and exporters of grain, elsewhere concerns are indeed mounting over potential food shortages. Meanwhile, the conflict has sent global food prices skyrocketing, which are hitting the poorest populations the hardest. To cope with this crisis, some in Europe have suggested to lower environmental standards in agriculture in favour of increasing food production. Others like Slow Food, warn that this is a mistake, because environmental protection is key to ensure sustainable food security in the long run. We hear many things about this food crisis, and this is a complex topic to grasp.
    How does it impact Europe and the world? How can we feed the world without the Ukrainian crops? Do we really need to produce more food while other farming alternatives are just waiting to be scaled up? We take a step back and untangle these complex issues with our guests:
    Nick Jacobs, director of IPES Food (the International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems)
    Nathalie Bolduc, researcher at IDDRI (Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations)
    David Peacock, Slow Food farmer in Germany
