Terra Madre is an international community of food producers, chefs/cooks and educators who aim to explore new and different methods of food production-- an approach that is attentive to environmental resources, global balance and product quality. The meeting of more than 6000 individuals from 120 countries will focus on issues of concern to all food producers today: biodiversity, hunger, poverty, water, sustainability, both traditional and new technologies, organic agriculture, the role of women, and the linkage between rural economic development and the prevention of conflicts. These and many other issues will be discussed by various workgroups, and will be conducted in a spirit of constructive proposal at the conference in Turin, Italy the last week of October.
