At Slow Food's Terra Madre 2016 we got together with our international network of food producers, activists, students and others foodprofessionals and decided to organize the first World Disco Soup Day! On April 29th we call for attention and action to stop global food waste, by organizing one of the most well known projects of the Slow Food Youth Network: Disco Soup. This time we want to address the problem of food waste not only on local/regional scale, this time we're going global!
We need Future Food Leaders to fix our broken food system.
Slow Food Youth Network and Hivos proudly present:
** The Changemakers Guide for Future Food Leaders **
The guide consists of both theoretical background and practical methods, as well as inspiring examples and profiles of young food leaders from around the world.
With this guide, Hivos, Slow Food Youth Network and Food Hub wish to enable young dreamers and doers to accelerate the transition towards a healthy, clean and fair food system. By offering tools and inspiration, making valuable connections and underlining the urgency and opportunities on the horizon, we can expand solidarity and make a difference.
Please use it, share, and empower our international network of Future Food Leaders!!

Meet change makers of the future at Terra Madre 2016. This is Megumi Watanabe, assistant director Japan at Slow Food International and one of the founders of Slow Food Youth Network Japan. SFYN Japan works on two ongoing projects: the roof-top garden in Tokyo together with Slow Food Ginza, where children are able to learn about gardening and a Disco Soup every month. A Slow Food Academy and a bilingual web magazine are projects that are about to launch next year. For the future Megumi would like to see a world where people think what Slow Food does is nothing special.
Meet change makers of the future at Terra Madre 2016. This is Caio Bonamigo, board member of the Slow Food Brazilian association.
He's currently studying gastronomy&research. Since We Feed The Planet he's making a big effort to create a stronger bond within SFYN Brazil. To reach that goal in a country this big, they created online monthly meetings. In addition, SFYN Brasil created a Disco Soup Day, where several Disco Soups are served throughout the country at the same time on June 4th each year. Caio would like to see a future foodsystem with "more small producer-fairs than supermarkets, where the work of food producers is valued and citizens have more time getting to know and tasting different kinds of food. I would like to see that restaurants introduce a bigger variety of produce on their menu. Hopefully we'll be able to eat good, clean and fair food without having to make a big effort or pay a lot of money". Slow Food Youth Network Brasil Slow Food Brasil Hivos

Meet change makers of the future at Terra Madre 2016. This is Gabriella Martinez Dañino, Major in Geography and Environmental Sciences. She works with Amalamar, an NGO which aims to protect, maintain and clean the Peruvian sea, so that marine biodiversity is maintained. Her dream for the future would be "a world where good, clean and fair food is valued. Where farmers are the base of the local food structure with a strong relationship with consumers. I also dream that all people have some approach or some experience with farming." #TerraMadre #SlowFood #FutureFoodLeaders
Meet change makers of the future at Terra Madre Salone del Gusto. This is Aida Baimakova, Founder of Slow Food Youth Network Kazakhstan They're organizing "Disco Baursak" and the Marathon of Taste to collect products from rural areas for the Ark of Taste. For Aida Slow Food is a fresh breath of air in society driven by wealth. To her Slow Food is about so much more than food alone. "It's about spirituality, it's about empathy, it's about the desire to live in harmony with nature". #FutureFoodLeaders
