The first international Floriade Dialogues Summit on March 28th is a summit in green and healthy food cities for all.
How do we build these green cities and how far off are we exactly? How does the availability and access to good, healthy food influence what we eat? And what is the best way to build and supply our cities with good food? Expect a lively scientific dialogue alternated with inspiring cases and best practices from international scientists, activists and creatives!
- Raj Patel (UK/ India), this writer and ‘rockstar’ of social justice and food will explain what is wrong with our food system.
- Mayor Chiara Appendino (IT) is the first mayor in the world to promote vegetarian and vegan diets as a priority in her administration. She’ll join us via livestream video.
