Our Idea of Europe

Since it was founded more than 20 years ago, Slow Food has defended small-scale traditional food producers and raised awareness among consumers at the grassroots level. Its aim is to create a more responsible food system, based on the pleasure and sharing of good, clean and fair food.
Now the time has come for us to liaise with the European institutions to promote our common vision and find common solutions.
We have to work together to design better policies to address the paradigms of food production and related problems such as climate change, the risk of biodiversity loss and our impact on developing countries.
Future policies are bound to affect all of us. Which is why we invite all European citizens to join the debate and also … join Slow Food.
