The increasing importance of sustainable food comes from a deeper knowledge of the consequences of food choices. Through our food choices we can collectively influence how food is cultivated, produced and distributed, and as a result, bring about great change.
Slow Food is global grassroots organization (founded in Italy by Carlo Petrini) aiming to make all people able to access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet.
Slow Food will be present at Expo 2015 sharing its vision and ongoing projects with the exhibition Discover Biodiversity. At the far east of the Decumano just a few steps from one of the main entrances.
The structures evoke the typical farmhouses of Lombardy’s rural landscape. The three modular buildings built from PEFC-certified larch wood from sustainably managed forests.
When the event ends, the buildings will be taken apart, moved and used elsewhere. This is our response to one of the big questions hanging over the future of the exhibition site. The Slow Food area will not be an encumbrance on the land, and nor will it be wasted.
The destiny of the structures and the installation will be decided during Expo’s six months, with anyone who wants to offer ideas of how to use them invited to do so. The final decision will be announced before September 30, 2015.
