Free event

According to the UN and the World Health Organization, malnutrition has three major forms: under-nutrition, micronutrient deficiency and over-nutrition.

These problems occur, in the Global North and South, where there is economic and educational poverty. It happens in Africa, where nuts, cheeses and powdered milk have supplanted their natural substitutes in many countries, as well as in socially-vulnerable urban areas of the Western world, where access to fresh, healthy and local food is often impossible. We discuss the problem, as well as initiatives put in place to spread awareness. 


  • Antonella Cordone, senior specialist in Nutrition at the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
  • Corinna Hawkes, director of the Centre for Food Policy at City, University of London.
  • Mohamed Abdikadir Somo, food activist and agriculture expert, Slow Food Coordinator in Somalia.


  • Andrea Pezzana, director of the Complex Structure of Clinical Nutrition, Asl City of Turin and scientific referent for the food and health theme of Slow Food.
