Internationale Festival, Italy

If you don’t know Internationale magazine, check it out here.

I was fortunate enough to be asked to talk on a panel about food waste at this years Internationale Festival in Ferrara, Italy. Apart from being nervous about talking at an event full of legit authors, journalists, professors, researchers etc. from around the world, I was so so excited and humbled to be part of such an amazing annual festival with an incredible organisation that promotes alternative news/writing all over the planet.

The event ran from Friday October 5th to Sunday 7th; I spoke on the Saturday. On the panel with me was a food waste researcher, a university professor and the co-director of the Slow Food Movement. I was honored to represent the action and thoughts of food waste projects on the ground, and shared the insight I have gained from visiting and working with so many. Before we started the talk the room filled with more people than there were seats which proved an enormous interest in the subject… something I can become curious of when very aware I live mostly in a bubble of community/foodie people. Despite my personal difficulty with having everything translated, the panel went very well and was a delight to be a part of.

Thanks to all who got me there and to those who showed specific interest in Landfull 🙂
