In the frame of the “Food is Culture” cooperation project co-funded by the EU Creative Europe programme, Europa Nostra – the European Voice of Civil Society committed to cultural heritage – and Slow Food – the international movement to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions – released an EU policy brief on Food & Cultural Heritage ahead of World Food Day on 16 October.

The policy brief on Food & Cultural Heritage will be presented on the occasion of the online debate “Food and Cultural Heritage: an EU Policy Perspective” on Tuesday 17 November from 11:00 to 13:00 CET, taking place in the frame of Slow Food’s Terra Madre Salone del Gusto 2020.
The debate will include a presentation of the art exhibition “What you didn’t know existed. Endangered food from around the world“, which is now available online after having been presented in several cities across Europe. This multimedia artwork aims at raising the public awareness of the richness of our food heritage, which embodies our shared European values, but is also often at risk of disappearing.
The Food is Culture project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, with the contribution of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Cuneo. It is led by Slow Food with its partners Europa Nostra, Kinookus, Nova Iskra Creative Hub, and Transpond AB.
