Slow Food believes that by understanding where our food comes from, how it was produced and by whom, adults and children can learn how to combine pleasure and responsibility in daily choices and appreciate the cultural and social importance of food.

Our education projects differ from most food education as they are based on the idea that food means pleasure, culture and conviviality. Our education initiatives are organized for varied audiences of children and adults, teachers, Slow Food members and the general public, and form an integral part of Slow Food events and campaigns.

They take many different forms: school gardens, guided tastings, farm visits, knowledge exchange between generations, practical workshops and meals with producers. In addition to this, Slow Food launched the University of Gastronomic Sciences in 2004 to offer a holistic approach to food academia.

Sustainable Nordic Food and Education

Nordic education entities of various kinds in the field of food – from higher education, via specialized and vocational education, till children’s education – already provide interesting examples and solutions aiming to a more sustainable food system. There is a need to intensify Nordic cooperation as there is a lot of unused potential to be activated through sharing best practices and networking. 

In 2017 the Nordic Council of Ministers adopted the Generation 2030 programme that will facilitate cooperation on the challenges faced jointly by the Nordic countries in achieving the UN’s Agenda 2030 and its 17 sustainable development goals.  Sustainability is central also in the New Nordic Food program (since 2004) of the Nordic Council of Ministers. link:
