The 7th edition of the International Forum on Food and Nutrition will be held on 1 December 2016 at Bocconi University in Milan.

Experts, opinion makers and young researchers come together for this interdisciplinary event, open to all, to share findings, scientific data and best practices in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals related to food and create a food model which protects people’s health as well as the planet.

By analysing the results of research promoted by the Foundation and thanks to the contribution of influential speakers, we are able to offer practical proposals and effective measures to tackle urgent problems such as hunger and obesity, the proper use of natural resources, food waste, the environmental impact of agricultural production and climate change.
