SUPPORT SLOW FOOD
Help us to protect the planet. Even a small donation makes a big difference.
Evermore violent weather, polluted oceans hostile to life, reduced agricultural yields, harvests devastated by drought, wars over resources and epidemic diseases: these will be the effects of climate change without a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
We find ourselves face on with an apocalypse of our own making.
And we've created it through the most wholesome act: eating.
The food system is responsible for a third of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Changing the way we choose our food now is an essential part of any potential solution. We'll see the worst effects of climate change only when it's too late to act: we don't have any more time to waste, we must start on a radically different path.
Across the world, Slow Food works to build this alternative future.
Together with the food communities of Terra Madre and through the Slow Food Presidia, the Ark of Taste, the Alliance between chefs and producers and the Earth Markets, we safeguard traditional knowledge, support local economies and agricultural practices that are respectful of the environment.
With the school gardens we are building a brighter future by cultivating curiosity through education.
With our campaigns we promote a food culture that helps consumers to make better choices for themselves and the planet, and play a leading role in positive change.
Do something today for the future of the planet.
