The Road to Terra Madre

Terra Madre 2022 isn’t just at Parco Dora in Turin, from September 22-26: it’s a series of activities taking place along the journey to the main event: The Road to Terra Madre.

We got started from April 7-10 with Slow Cheese Bodrum in Turkey and the Markt des guten Geschmacks from April 21-24 in Germany, and we have further events lined up around the world as we gear up for September in Turin.

The Road to Terra Madre

The Road to Terra Madre is a series of initiatives that showcase positive models for the transformation of our food systems. As the climate crisis, the pandemic and most recently the war in Ukraine have shown us, our current food systems are plagued by inadequacies.

The events on The Road to Terra Madre are festivals of their own, with a variety of activities planned, and are part of the official program of Terra Madre.
