Free event

Due to climate change, as much as 50 percent of land currently used for coffee cultivation may become unsuitable by 2050.

The impacts of climate change threaten not only the livelihoods of coffee farming families. It clearly threatens coffee itself. Michael Opitz shows us how coffee farmers can not only prepare for climate change but even contribute to mitigating it. He presents the holistic approach of the initiative for coffee&climate (c&c) and opportunities for partnerships.

Speaker: Michael Opitz is Managing Director at Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung, the foundation that implements the c&c projects on-site. He has been working for c&c since the initiative’s founding in 2010.

Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is in Parco Dora, Turin, from September 22-26, 2022, with over 600 exhibitors and a series of workshops, conferences and tastings that show how we can regenerate our planet through food.
