Slow Food is a global movement involving millions of people, in over 150 countries, with projects around the world:
- 10,000 gardens in Africa enabling communities to choose what they cultivate, supporting local economies and creating a continent-wide network of young people
- Over 2000 products listed in the Ark of Taste, our catalogue of endangered foods
- 400 Presidia projects, saving products at risk of extinction and giving value to the work of small-scale producers
- 2000 food communities connected in our international Terra Madre network
- 1500 convivia (local groups) around the world bringing people together at the local level
- International events such as Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre, Slow Fish, Cheese, AsiO Gusto…
- A diverse range of food education initiatives for all ages
- Multiple campaigns on issues affecting our food system such as food waste, land grabbing, fish, GMOs, EU policy and animal welfare
- And much much more…
Through our work, we aim to bring systemic change to communities around the world. We work on many levels – local to global – from spontaneous grassroots activities to international projects.
The annual Social Report published by the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity presents the (social, economic and environmental) impact of our projects.
