Our Forums are back, and as usual, the protagonists are members of the Slow Food network: Presidium and Community producers, cooks, activists and experts discussing agriculture, food, sustainability, biodiversity and productive models.

This year the Forums are organized around the four ecosystems: because similar ecosystems have similar frailties, and so may also share possible solutions to common problems. From October 8-12, we’ll discuss, among other things:

  • resource management systems in the highlands
  • water as a common good, as opposed to the privatization and control of water resources
  • traditional seeds as opposed to GMOs, one of the front-line battles in the lowlands
  • edible cities, where urban food gardens, farmers’ markets and the relationship between city and countryside are a potential antidote to food swamps and food deserts.

If you take part in one of forums, help us improve future Slow Food forums by taking this short survey.
