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.

    The grassroots food movement: four community initiatives that are transforming food systems

    The grassroots food movement: four community initiatives that are transforming food systems

    How can we transition our local food system? Can grassroots projects influence policy on a higher level? What are key elements for a successful community initiative? In today's episode I am going to tell you some stories of change. Stories of impactful grassroots initiatives that are boosting food system transition in different aspects.  
    A couple of weeks ago I was in Italy, in Cella Monte, for the project Shared Green Deal. A European project which aims to study from a social perspective the implementation of the Green Deal on a local level in different European countries. I have interviewed the project coordinators of the different grassroots initiatives, with the goal of learning more about their projects but also to see how European policies are impacting their local realities and how their projects can influence policy.

    Slow Food Goes Brussels: Farmers protests: what are they really about?

    Slow Food Goes Brussels: Farmers protests: what are they really about?

    In the past months, farmers have been protesting all over Europe. They're marching and driving tractors through city streets. But sadly, what's happening follows a pattern we see often. A serious protest, born out of real struggles, is being made to seem less important. It's being turned into a fight between farmers and environmentalists, or farmers and the European Union. And some people are using it for their own gain, like trying to win votes or protect their own interests. 
    Today, we'll talk about why farmers are protesting and with a focus on common grounds and on solving the root problems in our food system.
    Host & production: Valentina GrittiGuests: Natasha Foote (Freelance agri-food journalist), Jereon Candel (Professor of food and agricultural policy at Wageningen University), Sebastian Mira (Farmer from Slow Food Pays Catalan).
