Salone del gusto e Terra Madre in Turin report: a foretaste of 2015 Universal exposition? 3

TeamBlog Nutriilpianeta Salonedelgusto
Juliette and I met for a sunny weekend in Turin the 24 and 25 October at the occasion of the International taste fair Terra madre 2014 (Salone del gusto). This fair is organized every two years by Slow Food since 1996. These edition mains themes were food biodiversity and family farming, since 2014 is the international year of this type of agriculture. For the record, Slowfood was created by Carlo Petrini in the Italian Piemont Region in 1986 (first it was named Arcigola), then the organization became international in 1989 with the signing of a manifesto against “the universal folly of Fast Life” and for the preservation of pleasure and respect of the environment. And in 2014, the Salone del Gusto was: 220.000 visitors as in the 2012 previous edition 1266 exhibitors: farmers, producers, associations, institutions, Slowfood representatives from all around the world. More than 129 conferences on food, agriculture ...

image article
In order to get back on track with the Universal Exposition 2015 after the holiday period, I went this 3rd of September to a conference with Jeremy Rifkin, an American economic and science prospective specialist. If the conference theme took me a little bit away from the main issues we are following in our blog – sustainable agriculture and nutrition – it was however related to a theme that we would like to dig more into, the sustainability of the Expo 2015 itself and of the debates developing around it, in this case: how to go forward a transition to a more sustainable economic model and more efficient in the way it consumes resources? J. Rifkin conference was part of one the 4 axes of research of Expo labo[1], which is a project of Expo 2015 and of the foundation Giangiacomo Feltrinelli. This research cycle is entitles “Human city: possible ...

Towards the Expo 2015: the challenges of nutrition and agriculture sustainability at the forefront of international diplomacy?

Agenda verso Expo 2015
We have created this blog in a voluntary basis because we, Lucia, Laura and Juliette, expect that the Expo, which will take place in Milan next year, from May to October (147 participating countries, more than 20 million visitors expected), will constitute an opportunity to emphasize the theme of food and agriculture sustainability[1]. The next monts agenda, before the Expo 2015, is full of events which really give a unique opportunity to highlight these issues and challenges. The mobilization of the civil society in the perspective of the Expo 2015 also represents an important factor in order to answer to the central question given by the Expo: how to ensure a qualitative, sustainable, healthy and sufficient food to the whole humankind? Here is a small preview of the institutional events of the future months! Lucia e Juliette The semester of the presidency of the EU Council: an opportunity for Italy ...

Interview of the Triulza Foundation or how the civil society will get mobilised for Expo 2015

Interview Sergio Silvotti - Civil society pavillon Expo 2015
It’s during the Milan Furniture Fair one month ago that I had the chance to meet Sergio Silvotti, the president of the Triulza Foundation, which is in charge of the management of the civil society pavilion during Expo 2015. Indeed the foundation was organizing a conference on the theme “Can design be social”, and Sergio nicely accepted to be interviewed on the 8th of May. As an introduction to this interview I would like to recall how innovative the Expo 2015 is, since it’s the first time in the Universal Expositions history that there will be a pavilion entirely dedicated to civil society. And Sergio Silvotti allowed me to understand better how it happened and how they are organizing one year before the Expo, with spontaneity, transparence and optimism. Have a nice reading! Juliette What are the origins, principles and main objectives of the Triulza foundation? The Triulza foundation creation ...
