WE-Women for Expo: Women’s Energy for Feeding the Planet

WE Women for Expo Dettaglio

WE-Women for Expo is an Expo Milano 2015 project in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Fondazione Arnoldo and Alberto Mondadori. WE-Women for Expo addresses nutrition and sustainability and it does so, for the first time, by placing female culture at the heart of a Universal Exposition.
This Expo Milano 2015 project takes place in a particularly significant year for the themes of women’s empowerment and development. Indeed, 2015 marks 20 years from the first Beijing Conference, still a fundamental reference point in the struggles for women’s rights today, and the United Nations is launching new sustainable development objectives. This year’s Beijing Conference was the fourth in a series of global conferences on women organized by the United Nations. It was inspired by the concept of empowerment, and promoted the need to empower and sustain women and broaden their horizons.
Women for Expo International in collaboration with FAO, World Food Programme and the International Board has created the Women for Expo Alliance, a manifesto of solid actions against food waste: the new global women’s alliance against  food waste designed to reinforce the role of women in agriculture all over the world.
