The UN's presence in the Cascina Triulza
To ensure a sustainable future, gender equality and women’s empowerment must be enhanced. For this reason the Casina delle Triulza , hosting one of the 18 UN installations , has been dedicated to women and their pivotal role in agriculture and the crucial part they play in the fight against hunger and malnutrition. The multimedia content of this installation shows that women, despite producing most of the food from all over the world, often do not have access to productive resources and thus have fewer opportunities. The UN is present with 18 multimedia installations, easily recognizable by their giant blue spoons. These UN Spaces are located in various areas of the site along the itinerary dedicated to the theme “The Zero Hunger Challenge • United for a sustainable world”.
