Un appuntamento chiave per discutere di alimentazione sostenibile.

10th INTERNATIONAL FORUM ON FOOD AND NUTRITION

Fostering Business and Innovation while preserving Mother Earth

Humanity has pushed our Planet’s resources to their limits. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement provide us with the long-needed paradigm shift for people, environment and prosperity.

To achieve an inclusive, resilient and prosperous future, we must place sustainability at the heart of the development agenda. This requires a vigorous global commitment from all the actors to balance and integrate the three dimensions of sustainability — economic, social and environmental.

Thus, the critical questions we face:

  • How do we enable a radical transformation towards the sustainability of agri-food systems and eating patterns, with substantial benefits for human health, economic growth, social well-being and the environment?
  • What are the demands for integrating actions and strategies from the different stakeholders?
  • How do we activate and mobilize a responsible engagement and participation from the different stakeholders to implement necessary actions and strategies towards the Agenda 2030?

Despite decades of consensus on the interdependence of the three dimensions, efforts towards improvement are hindered by a lack of innovative, smarter pathways to success through transformation and synergies.

We are running out of time. Humanity has cultivated the idea of development and progress based on the belief that the planet’s resources are infinite and that human domination of nature is limitless.

There is a vast scientific knowledge and evidence showing we must act now.

Aligning the three dimensions of the action plan for a sustainable future means that we must create dialogue and share concrete best practices.

The International Forum on Food and Nutrition on December 3, 2019 in Milan was the global platform to promote solutions towards a dramatic change in the mindset of all stakeholders. Bringing together Governments, private sector civil society organizations, research and science, the Forum hosted a series of interactive panels throughout the day to support the sharing of experiences and good practices, from a global to a local perspective.

For this 10th edition, the Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition (BCFN) Foundation covened stakeholders on the Sustainability Challenge, in joint collaboration with World Food Programme Italy, National Geographic, the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UN SDSN), the Columbia Center for Sustainable Investment (CCSI), Santa Chiara Lab – University of Siena (SCL), and the Global Alliance for the Future of Food (GAFF).
