Terra Madre Giovani – We Feed The Planet was held from October 3 to 6, 2015 in Milan. Over 2,500 farmers and young food leaders from 120 countries around the world participated to the event to think about the future of our food system and bring their voices to Expo 2015.
As USA delegate, Shakirah Simley of Bi-Rite Market describes, We came. We ate. We learned. We occupied #worldexpo. Still in the afterglow of #TerraMadreGiovani. It was an incredible 4 days, and I am SO in awe of my fellow 2,000 young food producers and professionals who are dedicated to changing the world one plate, one seed at a time. Til next time ragazzi grazie mille! #terramadre #slowfood #wftp #slowfoodusa #wefeedtheplanet #expo2015 #slowfoodyouthnetwork #foodjustice.
We look forward to sharing more insights from USA youth delegates in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, check out the video footage of youthful energy entering into the otherwise staged Milan Expo.
