Happy Easter! In two weeks time, World Disco Soup Day is taking place in over 30 countries across the globe. Make sure to join, eat and dance! We're busy with our final preparations. #WDSD
Our president, Carlo Petrini, has a message for you. Don't miss out on World Disco Soup Day 2017!
Want to join World Disco Soup Day 2017? This is how you create your own Disco Soup in 6 easy steps:
Step 1: Find an easy-access location where people can sit or dance with access to electricity.
Step 2: Find food waste! Ask farmers, (super)markets and bakers if you can collect their unsold food that would otherwise go to waste.
Step 3: Find your friends! You’ll need a group of enthusiastic people who can help you collect all the food waste, cut a lot of veggies and love to dance.
Step 4: Make an invitation and ask people to bring their own bowls and cutlery. Create a Facebook event, link to the SFYN page and share some inspiring photos or videos beforehand. Create a buzz!
Step 5: Add your Disco Soup-song to the World Disco Soup Day 2017 playlist. Did you know that there’s a global spotify playlist where everybody can add their own Disco Soup music? We’ll be dancing to the same beats worldwide!
Step 6: Serve soup and dance! – filling bellies instead of bins.
April 29th is the first Global Disco Soup Day, so serve as much soup as possible and dance! Do you want to join us and organize your own local Disco Soup? Let us know!
So this weekend, another SFYN Academy started. Watch the pictures of the first meet-up of the Slow Food Youth Akademie, organised by Slow Food Youth Deutschland.
Slow Food Youth Network invites you to join the first World Disco Soup Day 2017 on April 29th to fight food waste!
While parts of the world population suffer from hunger, one third of the food intended for human consumption is being thrown away every year. 1.3 billion of tons of food is being fed to bins. At the same time, according to FAO, we only produce enough food to supply the world's growing population until 2050. It's clear we have a huge challenge in front of us.
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. A Disco Soup is a way of collecting a lot of foodwaste and making something really good out of it with a lot of people and having a lot of fun in the process. This time we want to address the problem of food waste not only on local/regional scale, this time we're going global!
We all care about this huge problem and it's time we give it the attention it deserves. That's why we want to invite you and everybody within the Slow Food Youth Network to start your own Disco Soup-event on April 29th. Join us and fill bellies instead of bins!

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!!
