Open Farms and World Nutrition Day 2016

Emilia Romagna participates every year in World Nutrition Day established by FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization), which this year will be celebrated on October 16, by opening some farms up to the public and hosting learning workshops and informative events.



The theme proposed for 2016 by Fao isThe climate is changing. Food and agriculture are, too”. In 150 countries, how to take on the challenges that nutrition presents with an ever increasing population and climate change will be discussed. Farming and breeding in a sustainable way means adopting practices that can produce more with less, using natural resources wisely. It means reducing food waste by improving harvests, storage, packaging, and transport and also institutional and legal aspects.

In line with the Fao, Emilia Romagna has given this day the title "Another food is possible". There are 77 farms that from Rimini to Piacenza, from 10.00am to 6pm, will open their doors to visitors to explain which changes they are making in agriculture due to climate change. In many farms it will be possible to have lunch, which will be made with local products, and take part in workshops and courses or in visits to the stables or guided tours.


The themed itineraries are divided into the following categories: The Countryside Teaches, Eating at the Farm, Nature and Culture, Take Home the Countryside, Visiting a Farm.


This is a great chance to reflect on the future of our planet and nutrition, but also to spend some relaxing time in touch with nature, listening to the wise words of farmers. For children it will also be a day where they can learn about the secrets of the countryside and pet farm animals. For everyone it is an important opportunity to learn that each of us can do something immediately to save Mother Earth.
