Food, People & Planet 2015 : Sharing Responsibilities For A More Sustainable Tomorrow

Oct 23, 2015
  • Description

With the help of the BCFN (Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition) Alumni – 100 young thought leaders from 20 countries representing five continents – the BCFN drafted the Youth Manifesto on Food, People and the Planet. The document offers concrete proposals to make our planet more sustainable, not just general principles. It was the result of intense workshops in which the young pictured how they could change the world by interpreting seven key roles for the food system: policymakers, farmers, activists, educators, the food industry, journalists and researchers. The Manifesto was delivered to the United Nations, the European Union, the Italian government and to several other countries participating in the Milan Universal Exhibition.
