We are pleased to present the new online 2013 Slow Food Almanac to you. As in years past, we have sought to paint a picture of the complexity of the Slow Food movement, revealed through the many articles, images and interactive links that describe our work over one year, as exhaustively as possible. The Almanac is divided into three sections: biodiversity, our themes and campaigns, and education. These three concepts, rich in meaning, exemplify the hundreds of concrete, everyday experiences that have characterized our network’s journey. A network that is increasingly widespread, creative, positive and aware that every day, through its actions, it communicates that when faced with the paradoxes of the current food system, we must respond with determination and an ability to trigger significant changes. A network that teaches us that the energy contained in all the faces you will see as you leaf through the Almanac has an enormous potential, and that all together we can contribute to a slow but radical transformation. So my invitation to you is to digest this publication and discover all the actions that the Slow Food and Terra Madre network is undertaking around the world: Actions to guarantee access to good, clean and fair food for everyone; to fight the absurdity of a hyper-industrialized food system with no concern for the well-being of people or the environment; to preserve the wealth of biodiversity; and to educate the adults of today and those of tomorrow about how to guarantee a better future, cultivated with care and love.
