film expo2015 festival de cannes alimentation durable alimentazione sostenibile sustainable food
Special article for the festival of Cannes: Our selections of five movies which make people think about the issue of nutrition and agriculture sustainability, which are at the same time funny and exciting. I’m sorry for the “French” selection, but if you have more ideas, don’t hesitate to comment! The cinema, mirror of our societies, our humor, our fears, our vision of the future, is a very pleasant way to think about what’s in our dishes and in our fields! Lucia 1. The Grande Bouffe / Blow-Out Italian-French movie of 1973, with Marcello Mastroianni, Philippe Noiret e Michel Piccoli. The story is simple, but particularly shocking: four middle aged men meet in a villa in France for a “gastronomic seminar”. In the end it turns to be a meeting with death, where four people, tired of their lives, gorge themselves till death. When it was released, the movie caused scandal,  booed ...

2015 Expo2015 COP21 OMD
Here we are in January 2015! Still one month to wait and our blog will turn one year old. I, Juliette and Laura are very happy to start this adventure, even though it’s not always easy, given that we do everything in a voluntary basis and we also have our own jobs to work on.

Nevertheless, the result is positive: interesting meetings, an increase of our knowledge regarding the topic of food and agricultural sustainability, and of course an increase in our willingness to learn.

Our 10 tips to fight against food waste at your own level 2

Food waste-Expo 2015
On the occasion of the 2014 World Food Day, we wrote you this special article on food waste, a topic that is particularly important for us and that will be central during the Universal Exposition 2015. One other good reason to choose this issue is that in France, the country where two of us come from (one of them being myself), today is also the National day of the fight against food waste! Enjoy the article! Don’t hesitate to leave your comments ! Lucia The challenges: “One-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally, which amounts to about 1.3 billion tons per year” Source FAO “805 million people are estimated to be chronically undernourished in 2012–14” Source FAO When talking about food losses that may happen along the logistic chain, people tend to think that they cannot do much from it as their own small level ...

Food diplomacy and sustainability

Diplomazia alimentare Expo2015
Last Thursday 25th September I went to an interesting workshop: “Expo2015 and Food diplomacy”, in a wonderful roman villa close to via Veneto: villa Maraini, which hosts the Swiss Institute in Rome. It’s been a whole week rich in events in the field of the initiative “Giro del Gusto”, characterized by conferences, round tables, tasting dinner of the typical swiss food, which aimed at promoting the participation of Switzerland at the Expo 2015. Lucia also participated to some events at the Villa, in particolar a conference on “Collective management of the territory and food security: past experiences and future perspectives” (we will speak more about this theme in the near future). After the conference Lucia had the chance to spend a delightful evening listening to music in  company of the Swill Pavillion team. She described me how you could already perceive, during that event, a bit of taste of Universal ...

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 ...
