Slow Food brings ‘good, clean and fair' to issues such as GMOs, sustainable fish consumption and land grabbing through campaigns which highlight cultural, social, economic, environmental and gastronomic considerations.
Therefore, the battle to protect raw milk cheeses is not only about the taste and diversity of these products, but also highlights the traditions associated with them, landscapes and local economies which rely upon them and the environmental benefits of shepherding. Similarly, the Slow Fish campaign focuses on marine ecology as well as consumer education on choosing the right fish for flavor, sustainable fishing and supporting local, artisinal fishers.
As a grassroots organization with a focus on bringing together responsibility and pleasure, Slow Food's campaigns aim to involve as many people as possible in ways that will be meaningful and enjoyable to them - during events for example. Our campaigns happen at all levels, from a local film screening on food waste to building a regional seed bank to protest aginst GMOs to bringing our demands for a better Common Agricultural Policy to the European Parliament.
Join us in confronting some of today's key issues for the future of food, and in finding pleasurable, relevant ways to promote good, clean and fair food production and small-scale producers.
