The other half of the Planet. The challenges, messages and proposals from the Women's Weeks

Economia / Redazione Expo 2015

The Women's Weeks were two intense, constructive and exciting weeks at Expo Milano 2015. Strong messages, clear proposals and concrete testimonies were given by the women and men who participated in over 50 international events, debates, concerts, readings and performances. Here is the story in words and pictures of what took place between June 29 to July 10 and the significance of this great legacy for the future.

Third trend: sustainability

Innovation / Emanuela Taverna - Michele Sechi Gatta

The food of the future must require less water, less energy, less fertilizer and less transport. And since sometimes you have to look at the past in order to innovate, many young people are devoting themselves to agriculture and reviving methods of organic cultivation, using biodynamic approaches, permaculture or synergic agriculture. Sustainability also has a vital social dimension, such as the inclusion of weaker or disadvantaged members of society or boosting female business empowerment.

All the facets of sustainability at Expo Milano 2015

Sustainability / Stefano Carnazzi

Sustainability is a concept which is made up of several different but intrinsically connected aspects: the environmental, the social, the economic and the cultural aspects. It is these different faces of the prism that make this concept innovative, thus getting away from the classical antinomy between campaigners for the protection of the environment and those favoring economic development understood merely as a quantitative growth figure.

Culture / Cinzia Figus

Although battling against the problem of creeping desertification, Djibouti holds many unpredictable natural marvels, like the great salt lakes, the deserts inhabited by zebras and warthogs, the hundreds of kilometers of coastline swarming with colorful fish and coral. Its cuisine too is filled with surprises… and refined French influences.

Malaysia, a mosaic of different cultures

Culture / Ilaria D’Ambrosi

Malaysia is a land of harmony in diversity. Its multiculturalism and its natural marvels reflect the eclecticism of a nation which boasts one of the richest and most varied gastronomic traditions in the world.

Chile. Where the stars shine brighter

Culture / Emanuela Taverna

From the Atacama Desert (which has the clearest night sky in the world) to Rapa Nui, Easter Island, and from Patagonia to the island of Chiloè, Chile has a huge inheritance of biodiversity which generates a generous range of gastronomic options

São Tomé and Principe. Creating harmony between mankind and nature

Culture / Tommaso Perrone

São Tomé and Principe celebrates its National Day in Expo Milano 2015 on September 27. A day to focus on the participatory theme of a small archipelago state which is proud to offer an example of how mankind and natural biodiversity can live together in harmony.

Pietro Leemann. Resolving problems by eating. Vegetarian

Sustainability / Simone Molteni - Silvia Passini

The Vegetarian Chance is a concept created by Pietro Leemann and Gabriele Eschenazi… an initiative involving competitions and study days focused on vegetarian gastronomic culture, to award and reward the best chefs in this field, which took place in Expo Milano 2015 on September 15.
