The seed of a healthy lifestyle, of good eating habits, of mental well-being, takes root where the environment is favorable. In other words, where there is adequate space.
However, especially in urban centers, public spaces are lacking, as well are events that can encourage the well-being of a population. Sometimes we don’t need to find innovative solutions: farmers markets, urban farms, shared kitchens are tools with great potential. Regenerating these places and encouraging their spread means increasing interactions, reconnecting people, and lessening the physical and cognitive distance between the city and nature.
The Slow Food network communities will discuss their experiences.
- Marcela Ramos, farmer, educator, and food activist at the La Melga Chiloé: Identidad y Agroecología Slow Food Community.
- Valentina Cecchetti, creator of the Earth Market for All project in Umbertide.
- Kazuo Takayasu, urban beekeper and educator.
- Kristie Daniel, director of the Livable Cities Program, Healthbridge Foundation.
- Enrico Morello, Slow Medicine board of directors, hematologist at the Bone Marrow Transplant Center at the Spedali Civili Hospital in Brescia, Italy.
