Terra Madre Forums


The Terra Madre Forums will take place in Valentino Castle – Turin Polytechnic and at Torino Esposizioni – University di Turin. These will be spaces for debate and confrontation on a wide range of topics relating to the world of food, where delegates from across the Terra Madre network will be able to discuss their problems, both amongst themselves and with experts, and work together to find potential solutions.

Agriculture, soil, legality, the raising of livestock and animal wellbeing, biodiversity, meat consumption, the role of women in food production: these are only some of themes that will be brought to life and developed in the Forums, taking in the points of view of all our members from across the world. The Forums are arranged with our delegates from the Terra Madre network in mind: there will be a limited number of places available to the general public. You can accredit yourself on arrival at the location and partecipate in the meetings which interest you most.

The program of Terra Madre Forums has been organized with the support of the Associazione delle Fondazioni di origine bancaria del Piemonte.
