Terra Madre Day 2016

Held every year on December 10, Terra Madre Day serves as an opportunity to intensify the public awareness on the severe loss of biodiversity that is threatening food security and contributing to climate change.

The Terra Madre network is made up of farmers, fishers, producers and cooks who with their vision and knowledge work to promote a new kind of gastronomy, based on biodiversity, environmental conservation and respect for local cultures and traditions.

This edition of Terra Madre Day serves as an opportunity to pay tribute to Slow Food’s recently launched Love the Earth Defend the Future campaign.

As well as fieldwork and finding solutions for challenges, the Terra Madre network also represents union, conviviality and enjoying the fruits of the land. Terra Madre Day offers us all a chance to celebrate together, all around the world, on the same day!
