Registration Open: Food Sovereignty Tour in Piedmont, Italy
Travel Dates: ITALY: Food Sovereignty in Piedmont, Oct 19-27, 2013
With a variety of microclimates, Piedmont is one of the most geographically diverse regions of Italy. This diversity is expressed in a rich food culture based on diversified peasant farming systems that are now threatened by policies favoring industrial development. Join Food First to examine the complex realities of the Italian, European and global food system through direct contact with the producers, consumers, policymakers and advocacy groups of the Piedmont region.
The delegation will travel through beautiful Italian countryside and stay in farmer-owned guesthouses where you’ll eat local foods at the site of production, giving you a first-hand understanding of rural life. Meet with organizations like the Italian Association of Organic Agriculture, Vía Campesina, Piedmont-based Slow Food International and others working to protect small farmers, promote sustainability and conserve agro-biodiversity in Italy.
